We went past on the tram several times and so did not walk round. From the tram is is a splendid building. Our accommodation was opposite and so had a great view of this lit up at night. Good open space with art.

The outside of the Parliament building is spectacular; especially at night. It was copied after the Parliament building in the United Kingdom. In fact, the Hungarians built it 4 square meters lbigger just so they could say it is larger. However, since they half the...More

Beautiful place must visit. Next to river and looks best in night with lighting. Can go inside though it’s operational parliament.

Did not know anything about this place until a local suggested we give it a visit. Well worth the effort to learn some of the history of Hungary. Again the display of wealth is enormous. Fortunately the parliament was bicameral but is now unicameral so...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
