IMO this is one of the most beautiful buildings in the world. The outside is breathtaking and at night it is illuminated with many other sights in the city. The guided tour is about 1 hr long and tells the history of the building. The inside is beautiful as well. I suggest you buy your tickets in advance as we... More

Fabulous architecture and particularly striking when viewed from the river or the Buda side. Lucky enough to have attended a concert in the Dome on a previous visit. I just love this building. It's awesome!

I literally gasped when I saw the Parliament. It is a fabulous building inside and out. The English speaking tour was informative and interesting. Well-done. Not to be missed!

We took the Italian tour when the English tours were sold out on a Wednesday afternoon, but enjoyed being led through this cathedral-like legislative building. The legislature is now unicameral, and we only were allowed inside the chamber that is no longer used, but it was a very interesting experience.We were led through halls and open areas that rivaled the...

This truly magnificent and symmetrical structure dominates most views across the Danube from the Buda side and is stunning at night. Details up close dazzle. As for the tour, why should the cost for three rooms only and no photo taking in the main dome hall where the original crown of St Stephen resides be so expensive? This is the... More

It was a nice looking building, but it Was less impressive compared with other parliament in Europe. The guards uniform needs modern design.

Although it was a scheduled 45 minute tour 20 minutes are spent getting in and through security. Be aware there are 132 steps BUT there is an elevator so just ask . You probably should get tickets in advance. It's pretty interesting.
