I walked around the building and I was in awe at this magnificent edifice. The architecture, and location was something to behold. It's one of the most prominent building in Baudapest and one can't miss it.

Absolutely gorgeous. The most beautiful parliament in Europe. Its gorgeous from the Danube river as well as in Pest side you can actually walk the building around.

This is truly a majestic building, which symbolizes Budapest more than anything. If this is your first time in the city, do take the guided tour (available in several languages throughout the day), as the interiors are even more beautiful than the exteriors.
