While waiting for our tour of the Parliament, we happened into the World Press Photo exhibit here. The building is architecturally fascinating, a real gem.

I would recommend to pay a visit to this museum. You can learn a great deal of things from its collection. The building itself is very interesting from an architectural point of view.

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
