Parliament House - Review

The Parliament house of Hungary is a beautiful building with its huge domes and white stone structure. This building is the political centre point of Hungary and extremely important to the modern history of Hungary.

This Neo-Gothic Building in Budapest is certainly an imposing sight. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to just take a look at the impressive exterior but the interior is equally impressive.  The interiors are rich in feel and texture. There is beautiful work done in gold on all the walls. The crown Jewels of Hungary have also put on display. It is fascinating to take a tour of the parliament house from the inside. There are also frescoes on the walls and ceilings. There are also sculptures in many places. the central hall of course ir probably the most impressive part of the building. a sight definitely  worth admiring is the beautifully done insides of the roofs. A real treat for both the history and art lover!

Parliament House, Budapest Reviews

  • Spectacular parliament building. It is easy to reach by public transport. The place is also where few river cruises on the river Danube start. There is a water fountain on one side and River Danube on the other. This is the second largest administrative building in Europe. They have visitor tours to show the building from inside. There are few benches around the parliament which are great to sit and see the views on a good sunny day.

  • Incredible structure. It is one of the most beautiful buildings in Budapest. Its so big that you have to be on the river or on the other side of Denube to get a perfect shot. I suggest to take a night rive cruise. It looks even beautiful during the night with all those lights. The surrounding is also a nice area to walk along the river bank. You will get a nice view of the castle hill from here.

  • Magnificent. The staple picture of Budapest! Tour was interesting an in depth. Seeing the crown was magnificent and a very in-depth part of history. Unfortunately pictures of the crown aren’t allowed but it is understandable. Student tickets are cheap but usually require a day or two preparation ahead of time

  • I was amazingly impressed by the night view of the Parliament! I have never seen such particular night view before. I thought such breathtaking scene may only be seen in Budapest! The Parliament is one of the olderest legislative buildings in Europe which is also an important tourist attraction there. It is currently the largest building in Hungary and the second largest Parliament building in Europe. Highly recommend to take a look on this remarkable construction at night!

  • The parliament building itself is spectacular - by day and night. We did the tour inside, which we purchased online in advance. The cost per person (if non-European) per ticket was actually quite expensive, and this gets you a tour that is just under an hour, in one of a variety of languages (we did an English tour). Our guide was knowledgeable, and you are allowed to take photos inside except of the crown and guard in the dome room. They leave you in a line and in the main lobby, and you don't get to go through security until your tour time. This wasn't communicated to us in advance, and I was worried we were late for the tour. it also meant the first 10-15 minutes of your tour is your group of 40 going through security and getting their headset. You have to walk many stairs, though there is an elevator for those who need it. Sadly, on our day, the power was out in the whole building, and so we basically toured it in the dark. This means that even though we could take photos, there wasn't many you could take. They gave us a big speech about no power, and no refunds, and no notice was given that we wouldn't have lights during the tour. The whole thing felt a little weird, and I was surprised they wouldn't allow rescheduling due to this circumstance. We learned quite a bit, but without lights it wasn't really as regal and impressive as I expected.
