“amazing building”(587 reviews)
The domed neo-Gothic structre was inspired by the British House of Parliament and serves as both a vibrant government center and a proud city landmark on the banks of the Danube.

My daughter and I visited the parliament building over the Easter weekend. I had booked tickets online and mistakenly booked our tour in Hungarian instead of English. It was of course my error but the manner in which we were treated was shockingly rude. In...More

Unbelievable. A must see! It is so well maintained and pristine that it appears new, although obviously it isn’t.

I did the interior tour of the Hungarian Parliament building that starts from the visitor center. Not especially cheap (6700 ft) and pretty short (you don't see most of the building), but the tour was still worthwhile. The interior is at least as ornate as...More

A beautiful building. Well worth a tour. Book direct with parliament web site as it’s cheaper. Book day’s in advance to get an allotted time. Language of choice guide. Bring ID. But not big bags. Expect airport style security to enter. Well worth doing though...More

The place is huge, built by the river and reminiscent of the Westminster Palace. The square around it is fascinating and it’s easily accessible via the Number2 tram.

This building is massive and gorgeous from the outside! Right on the Danube River. Outside grounds landscaped with beautiful flowers. A must see!

Walk around the outside, see it from the river: you won't get tired of this imponente building. At night, the lights make it even more impressive, specially from the river

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

The stair with 96 steep steps is the one used only in case of an official visit from another country's Head of State. You'll see it but won't use it.
