Didnt do a tour through this beautiful building but the exterior is as stunning as it is massive. Its the largest building in Budapest and if I had more time I would have booked a tour, still worth looking at if you cant get in.

Tours fill up quickly so order on-line if you can. Beautiful building, the tour guide was knowledgeable. St Stephen's crown is worth the price of admission.

The guided-tour is a must! Not only the outside and surroundings are completely beautiful. The inside is to die for. A great architeture, the history behind it confirms that this is definitely Budapest´s best-known postcard.

We walked around to the Parliament from our hotel, it was a very interesting building. We did not actually go in but found the outside, architecture, water features and ceremonial guards all very interesting.

Amazing architecture! Not the best location to take pictures, but everyone seems to forget that it's about seeing things with your own 2 eyes, not about taking a picture of it to look at it afterwards...

The Hungarians seem to have embraced the bigger is better concept and raised it to a higher standard. I walked around the building on a holiday so it wasn't open to the public but the grounds alone are worth the trip.

We made a point of booking a tour here on a Monday - when most other museums are closed in Budapest - and it really was a fascinating experience. Learning about the physical building, which is absolutely beautiful, as well as the way government works, really added to our understanding of he city. The exhibits outside Parliament in Kossiuth Ter... More

We nearly missed getting to see inside this fabulous building because on the day and time we had planned our visit, there was official business going on inside and there were no tours available. We returned a couple of days later only to find that all the English-speaking tours were full up. Turning away in disappointment, we suddenly decided -... More

The building is absolutely magnificent! As a former Parliamentarian I was disappointed that there was a fee (and a high one) for touring the building and further disappointed with the guide. Not only did it seem to simply be a memorized script, but there was no time given for questions, nor were questions invited.

We could only get the 8:30am tour on the day that suited us but this turned out to be good as there were 50 places still available which meant our group was small and could move about quickly and ask questions easily. Our English speaking guide gave us head sets to hear her as she guided us along passageways to... 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.
