“Breathtaking building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

Parliament is Hungary's legislative centre, built in the Gothic Revival style. It is the 2rd largest Parliament in the World (England's is the largest). Unfortunately we did not get to see the inside, but the outside is the most beautiful building I have ever seen. Viewing it at night from the river ship cruise was breathtaking. You may have to book on line a day or so ahead to be able to take a tour.

“Parliament”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

The Parliament is one of the most important sights of the city. There are organized tours to visit inside, but you should book quit earlier because there are no tours every day. You can book it in the hotels or travel agency. It's a very beautiful building outside and inside as well.
Inside you can see the painting of the famous hungarian painter Munkácsy. Unfortunatelly now there is reconstruction on the Kossuth square so you can not have a beautiful wiew to the building with the park, statues together.
