A must-see spot

Absolutely great! Beautiful architecture, even more nice than in pictures. It seems to be one of the most spectacular Parliament buildings from anywhere.

This is big complex. We understand what things they wish to keep off public. But only a glance from outside is permitted. Far out, this is not good. Open up more!

Worth every penny

It is a must in Budapest and I believe it is worth the money you pay for. You don't really get to visit all the palace but you see some designated parts which are wonderful. The only problem we had was to get the ticket: I recommend buying the ticket sometime before your trip so you are sure you can get in. I strongly recommend passing by the Parliament at night on the other side of the river because that is one of the best views you can find in Budapest.

Stunning at night!

Nothing would've been better to do that night, so we had planned to see the Parliament building at night. We also went there during the day but I can say that the unique and fine architecture hits much more intensely under those lights. Very impressive!

The Most Beautiful Parliament in Europe
Feb 2020
I haven't had the chance to explore its interior but I can assure that it's worth the visit. The outside is absolutely breathtaking with the stunning lights and its majestic presence right next to the historic Danube river.

It's surely does take your breath away. We viewed the parliament by taking a boat ride in the sunset. It was a memorable experience.

Budapest!
Feb 2020
I have been to many wonderful places but I am going to talk about Budapest because that city is the best city where I have been. Budapest is an amazing city. It has beautiful places, streets, everything! It is not necesary go by car you can go to walk because everything is to closer. I loved Budapest because Its architecture is as if you were in the past. There is a lot of history about Budapest. If you have the opportunity to visit it I tell you, visit it!
