Really impressive architecture, different views at day and night - it's worth more than one visit at different times.

I have passed the parliament building endless times on my trips to Budapest and it never disappoints, every time it's just as breath taking. I would recommend paying for the tour of the building as it isn't too expensive and is very interesting, you get to see Hungarys Crown Jewels. The tours get busy in the afternoon so it is... More

Very impressive building by the side of the Danube. At nighttime when the floodlights come on it is areal gem. The building is situated on the pest side of the city. A nice walk in the evening, is to cross the Chain bridge and walk along the Buda side to admire it across the river. We did, and it was... More

I found the Parliament building to be very interesting from an architectural point of view. It has similar features to the Reichstag in Berlin. We didn't pay for a tour and go inside, instead we wandered around the site and we found that was enough for us.

Nice building, interesting guided tour but not seeing a lot of the inside. You can see the Royal crown inside.

Beautiful building, probably the best in Budapest. I would recommend to visit it both in the day and night; at night time, the lights will create a unique atmosphere and make it look even more beautiful.

We walked here from Astoria which wasn't too far...first we came across the shoes on the Danube which was very sad, not far along from there was the Parliament buildings. Based on lovely well kept grounds, just in front of the Danube. The buildings themselves are just brilliant, and at 11am we were lucky enough to see the changing of... More

The building from the outside is enough to invite you for a tour within its marvelous architecture and sculptures. The tour is very well detailed and tour guides are very friendly. An elevator is available for those who are not able to climb over 100 stairs and also parents with pushchairs during the tour.

A stunning building from any angle We were lucky as our hotel (The Art'otel) had fantastic views of it. We saw it from the river, from each side, from Margaret Island, from the castle and Fishermans Reach.... All over Architecture at its best

We did not have time for the tour but were grateful we had time to walk around this site. The structure is enormous and gorgeous; it's difficult to imagine how a structure of this magnitude was constructed so many years ago. Also, in addition to seeing this during the day, be sure to capture this site at night, the glowing... More

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
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 and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
