We were advised to do a tour of Parliament, and after viewing stunning exterior it was clear why. I hadn't quite read my LP book properly and didn't realise that you had to do a tour at a specific time. We then went back the next day to get on an English speaking tour, fail part 2- It was full.... More

We booked our tickets online. We arrived to join the a English tour. Fairly chaotic as there were tours in Hebrew and German getting organised at the same time! Once we commenced it was wonderful, a real gem of a building. We saw the Crown Jewels, toured part of the central parts of the building and even looked into the... More

One of the main sightseeing of Budapest. The square next to it is a right place to have rest after a long walking

We took a tour around this wonderful building as in all the years we have been coming to Budapest have never actually seen the interior. The tour lasts about 30 to 40 minutes and covers all the main aspects you would like to see,ROUND ROOM,ORNATE STAIRCASES,PAINTED CEILINGS,STAINED GLASS WINDOWS ,etc,etc,just superb and a good insight to the Hungarian parliament.

That is the most beautiful building in Budapest. I love to see that they preserved the history, and they still work there.

I stood on the hill above the Danube looking down at the Parliament House. "Why copy London's," I thought, "You people are extremely capable of designing your own unique building." - Even though a local, Imre Steindl, designed this; and it was completed only in 1904. After WW 2 the Russians refused to go home, and in 1956 Hungarians fought... More

Me and my Hungarian girlfriend were lucky enough to be staying only one block away from the Parliament building, which is bigger than you could imagine from postcards and even from the river cruise view - Up close it is impressively huge. We took the English group tour around 2pm and the curator was excellent. We got to see the... More

The tour guide was terrible she rushed us and talked very fast. We didn't get anything out of the tour except spending money on a lousy tour.
