“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

WHen visiting Budapest, it is a must to see at least from the outside. Believe me, this is one of the most wonderful Parliament building on the planet. If you have time, do not miss to check the inside as well.

“Beautiful building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

This building is so photogenic. The best view is from the Danube on one of the boats, or from Buda. We tried to get in on a Monday but due to a state visit the building was closed to tourists. People with EU passports get in free. Was told it's best to check the internet for opening times.
There was a lot of renovation work taking place at the time we visited so the garden area was closed to the public. Howerver, there were some interesting historical posters of the Parliament grounds on the herris fencing around the Parliament building.

“Fascinating building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

We joined one of the many English-language guided tours which was really informative and the guide did her best to make it fun, though there was a pretty big crowd - understandably. Anyway, the building itself is simply unique and I can only recommend it to architecture fans. It is a must in Budapest. - while it's free for EU nationals, Other visitors must pay entrance fee.
