It is really impressive building from outside and inside . Book your ticket in advance if possible as you can enter only on a guided tour. It was informative and nice to see and lasted aprox. one hour.

Imposing building, beautiful day or night. Impressive when one thinks it was actually built to be a parliament, not a palace!

Beautiful building. Tours given by approved guides within Parliament in groups of 40+. Building architecture and workmanship is stunning. Must see Parliament lit up at night from the water!

Beautiful and wonderfully restored. A must see but it is really busy too. Otherwise there is not much to see.

The Hungary parliament building is incredible to see. It is located next to the Danube river, in the Pest part of the city of Budapest. It architecture resembles the british parliament building in London. Is a must see place in the capital city of Hungary.

The building is truly beautiful and the commentary would be good if the audio devices didn't keep cutting out. It's worth the time and admission to visit. One real disappointment was access to washrooms. We wanted to use the restrooms following the tour and had...More

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
