This is an impressive looking building both inside and outside. To take a look inside, you must join a tour. The tour guide spent more time talking than taking you to see different parts of the building. Certain areas are also off limits to cameras....More

No doubt the top attraction in Budapest. Either walk around it, see it from the Danube River or from the Buda side, it is one magnificent building to enjoy day or night.

Sorry, was not interested in a tour inside although UK friends enjoyed it very much. Stunning to look at from near or far. A treasure on the Danube. Iconic! Awesome to actually view.

I generally do not post reviews unless the attractions are exceptionally good or bad. Unfortunately, this "attraction" fits perfectly in the latter category.

Apparently, it too 200 years to build this. You can see why, the architecture is stunning. It looks brand new.

The building is impressive both inside and outside. It is huge and majestic. It is definitely the symbol of Budapest. I can't imagine anybody tries to skip this attraction. Must see and I am sure that most of you will be impressed.

We booked a timed admission English-language tour as there are very limited tickets available for walk-ups. The guides speak excellent English and you are given a headset so you can always here the commentary. The building dates from the very beginning of the 20th century,...More

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
