And I have seen plenty. This is an amazing place, the highlight of out trip to Budapest. Note: You must take a guided tour. But it is professionally done, with the guide speaking through a microphone while you listen through earplugs. This way, you can actually stay back from the tour group and take pictures without worrying about keeping up... More

Didn't get tour as they are at different times for different languages worth checking out before your visit. Building itself is very impressive, will return next visit to Budapest .

My husband and another couple visited the Parliament on a private city tour. It's was a beautiful building inside and out. The tour is a must to learn about the history. I would highly recommend seeing the Parliament when in Budapest.

This building is very nice, there are a lot of sights in Budapest. So, we recommend to rent a bus what goes around or buy a boat trip, from the boat you can see the most beuatuful view for taking pictures. We didn´t go into the house because we didn´t have that much time.

Such a beautiful building with such intricate details so it's best to get up close to it to appreciate it fully. Even more stunning in the evening when it's all lit up. A must do!

A real iconic looking building on banks of the danube. Looks gorgeous as you walk along up to it. The building and square it is in is so well maintained. Every bit as nice as the pictures you see of it. A must see for any visit to budapest.

The parliament building is absolutely stunning in the sun, and the surrounding gardens and scenery are stunning. Well worth a visit, and there are some lovely cafés and bars in the vicinity.

We walked past this building many times. it looks great from every angle but you can't get in. There are interesting statues and monuments to look at on the outside. By the flag pole are 2 ceremonial guards. Opposite is the Museum of Ethnography well worth a visit.

My wife and I took a guided English tour of the Hungarian Parliament this morning and it was excellent. Our guide spoke perfect English and not only told us about the building but also gave us a brief history of Hungary. Only downside is that non-EU citizens pay over twice as much for a tour.

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.
