The domed neo-Gothic structre was inspired by the British House of Parliament and serves as both a vibrant government center and a proud city landmark on the banks of the Danube.

Note: they search you carefully before you enter the place, so if you have a knife or smth like that, not sure, if it will be okay. Okay, everything is said by the reviews around. :) I personally was more impressed with engineering behind this...More

First a warning. Do NOT climb the 130 plus stairs if you have health or disability issues. Agree to take the elevator with the guide. If you take the stairs you may be a bit winded. The building is amazing. The tour is not long...More

Great tour round Parliament building. The guide was excellent and provided a history of the building. The tour is only 45 minutes but very enjoyable. Remember to take some form of ID to confirm you are a EU citizen as this reduces the entry fee.

Disappointing visit as completly covered up under large piles of materials and could not get access to properly take in. What an amazing building it is though.

What a beautiful place. Be sure to take time to wander about the whole area. Also gorgeous at night when lit up.

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

there is a small museum to the side you can see for free - but you don't really get to see any of the interesting parts of the building in there..
