The parliament building was modelled upon the London building and it shows. A really impressive structure that looks tremendous at night and at day. Do not forget the camera

The parliament sits on the Danube opposite the Castle and is absolutely huge. The architecture and all the statues are splendid. There are regular guided tours and this is well worth a visit even if you just want to view it from the outside.

The hebrew tour was terrible because of the guide tour, no body couldn't understand him, it will be better to take the English tour or other language you understand.

I thought this very interesting - learned much about Hungary and it's history. Beautiful structure. My only gripe is that the tours are about 50 people each for English. Difficult to hear commentary over murmuring. Went at 835 am and could only get 3 pm tour. Summer must be far worse. Can't imagine.

Especially at nights, this place is a must see. The lights add to the beauty and marvel of the building.

Superb building inside and out. Cheap tickets and very good tour guides. Check dates before you book as part of the building may not be accessible (parliament sitting).

It's a really incredible building. Its history is very interesting. The guide during our visit explains all about Parliament very well and it was interesting again. The zone in which it is placed seems to be improved, as seen in different areas of Budapest.
