Based on the British House of Parliament, Hungarian Parliament Building serves as one of the city's most beautiful landmarks with its recognizable neo-Gothic architecture. This site is the center of government activity, but it is also a magnificent domed structure and one of Europe's oldest legislative houses. This building was inaugurated in 1896 on the 1,000th anniversary of Hungary. Stroll along the Danube to take in views of the structure's exterior before entering. Walk up the building's intricate staircase and through its central hall, pausing to notice details like historic sculptures, stained-glass works, ornamental mosaics, and the Holy Crown of Hungary, which has been displayed here since 2000.

  • Really enjoyed our tour of Parliament, well worth a visit. Insightful host of the tour and a good length of time. Arrive early to beat the queues and guarantee a ticket

  • The parliament is beautiful inside and out. It was worth visiting. I recommend you buy your tickets online. The tours are always guided with one or two people but they won't be talking as you will be listening to the headphones. Language is always optional. The guides will only be leading way and telling when to and when not to take photos. I highly recommend.
  • Tickets are usually not possible to get on the same day so make sure to get yours online at least one day in advance. Make sure that you book the correct language, we have mistakenly booked a different language. They have a person as a guide for some language and audio guides for others. But you usually can't get your preferred audio guide language if you booked the wrong one because they're limited. The inside of the building is very interesting, there are about 90 stairs to go to the upper rooms but an elevator is also available. Photos and videos are allowed everywhere except in the dome where the crown is.
