Parliament is stunning from the outside - especially at night! It's even more beautiful during the day on a tour. The gilded gold ceilings, beautiful architecture, and interesting history made it a fantastic. Note that we booked about a week in advance - I think they were full sold out for English tours during the day.

The most beautiful parliament building seen with my own eyes. Symbolic pride and Pest. You can and you have to watch it with wielku points of the city like the opposite shore and the hills, and from the ship and from the bridges.

It's a great place to be shown Hungarian architecture at its best. You get a full guided tour with headsets and a English speaking guide (or German plenty of multi lingual tours tbh) A guard is up front and to the rear for obvious reasons but they were never overbearing and quite discreet. You also get to see the royal... More

We walked up to the parliament, very lovely area and a impressive building, with great architecture. It looks particularly lovely at night time when the lights are on. There is some information on the happenings in 1956, located down the steps underneath the parliament too. There are also tours, which include viewing of the Crown Jewels. Worth a walk to... More

Absolutely worth the time to take the tour of this building. The architecture and décor are truly something to see. I was taken with the big red star, sitting in a corner of the museum at the end. No sign to indicate it as such, but if you are a child of the Cold War you will immediately recognize it... 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.
