The Hungarian Parliament is an Iconic structure.
Wished we could have taken a tour inside of this building.It was closed that day.

It took nearly 17 years to complete. The cupola height is 96 m which refers to the year of their millennium celebrations 1896.

Its such a gorgeous building even up close. The best views i believe is when you get off the Bethyanny metro ter and view it from Buda side.

The outside of the building is the most impressive of any in the city. A must see from the river. With our family we walked in and bought tickets for an English speaking tour guide. We only had to wait 20 minutes before we got to go inside. Totally worth the wait. It was a very short but informative tour.

The cafe by the gift shop has great coffee!

We were able to see the guards do their presentation. The building is gorgeous. You can see the inspiration from England but with lighter stone balanced against a red roof

The parliment is definitely a place worth seeing! The best view however is if you go on a river cruise because the view is just unforgettable!
