This was my favorite building in all of Budapest. It commands attention in every picture. Take a river cruise. All the buildings and Chain Bridge are lit up. Avoid the Duna Palota and Budai Vigado river cruises. The food is terrible, service is bad, don't drink the wine that is included with the dinner.

I came to Budapest twice in 2014, and visited the Parliament building twice. The first time, it was in the middle of winter so the sky was overcast. There was also building works right across the plaza between Parliament and the museum opposite, which was a shame because it ruined half of the view. Buying our tickets was a very... More

must see. huge beautiful building. the only way to visit the indoor chambers of the parliament is booking a guided tour at the local info point. anyway tickets often run out by noon. so it is better booking via web.

Tours inside have to be booked and paid for ahead of time, and it does not take visitors to all of the building—key parts. Photos allowed except in the main central hall where the famous royal crown in displayed. Certainly impressive, and interesting in being modelled on the British Houses of Parliament but with real innovations like all-electric light and... More

Be sure to book the tour at least several days prior to the visit, the group size is small and tickets are going away fast. You can book the visit online and print the ticket at home on jegymester.hu , very convenient. The building is a true neo-gothic jewel with rich and intricate decorations on the inside. The tour is... More

A spectacular building with an amazing interior decoration and architecture. The only trouble being that you pay quite a lot for admission and are rushed round in just over 40 minutes. No time to loiter in a room if you want to take lots of photographs. You have a guide, a guard at the front of your party and one... More

Take the tour, it's worth it. The inside of this building, along with the history of the building, was incredible. The tour was about 45 mins long and went through several of the rooms of the building, including the crown of the city. It's beautiful, and worth the visit. Tickets can be purchased online prior to your visit.
