Thank you!
The commanding building of Budapest Parliament stretches between Chain Bridge and Margaret Bridge on the Pest bank of the Danube.
It draws your attention from almost every riverside point. The Gellért Hill and the Castle Hill on the opposite bank offer the best panorama of this huge edifice.


The Hungarian Parliament Building is the seat of the National Assembly of Hungary, one of Europe's oldest legislative buildings, a notable landmark of Hungary and a popular tourist destination of Budapest. It lies on the bank of the Danube. It is currently the largest building in Hungary and the largest Parliament in Europe. Construction from the winning plan was started in 1885 and the building was inaugurated on the 1000th anniversary of the country in 1896, and completed in 1904. (The architect of the building went blind before its completion.)
As the millennial celebrations of 1896 approached, the nation's demand for representation channelled the conception of a unique Parliament building. The Palace of Westminster in part inspired the design, but a well-known Hungarian architect, Imre Steindl, laid out the plans in their entirety. The building stretches 268 meters in its length, along the Danube embankment. Ornamented with white neo-gothic turrets and arches, it forms the most outstanding landmark of the Pest side horizon. Statues of Hungarian monarchs and military commanders decorate the outer walls. The unique interior design includes huge halls, over 12,5 miles of corridors, a 96-meter high central dome, and 691 rooms. When the Parliament is not in session, all these can be visited (cameras are allowed);

  • The Hungarian Parliament Building is the seat of the National Assembly of Hungary, one of Europe’s oldest legislative buildings, a notable landmark of Hungary and a popular tourist destination of Budapest. It lies on the bank of the Danube. It is currently the largest building in Hungary and the largest Parliament in Europe. Construction from the winning plan was started in 1885 and the building was inaugurated on the 1000th anniversary of the country in 1896, and completed in 1904. (The architect of the building went blind before its completion.) As the millennial celebrations of 1896 approached, the nation's demand for representation channelled the conception of a unique Parliament building.

The building stretches 268 meters in its length, along the Danube embankment. Ornamented with white neo-gothic turrets and arches, it forms the most outstanding landmark of the Pest side horizon.

  • Budapest Parliament in Numbers The Parliament is 268 m long and 123 m wide across the centre. It occupies 18.000 square metres on the surface and 473.000 cubic metres of space. About 50 five-story apartment blocks could fit into the Parliament, just to give you an idea about its vastness. Budapest Parliament is the third largest parliament in the world. Today it seems too big for such a small country, but at the time of its construction Hungary formed part of the Habsburg Empire, that stretched from the Tatra Mountains to the Adriatic. The Parliament has 691 rooms . The length of all the stairs together measures about 20 kilometres. The most impressive is the grand staircase. The building contains spacious halls. The central dome's height reaches 96 m. The building has 27 entrance gates. 90 statues and the coats-of-arms of various cities adorn the exterior. There are 152 statues and pictures of national fauna. The decorations needed about 40 kg 22-23 karat gold .
  • Best of Budapest Parliament The Hungarian Coronation Regalia is the most prized treasure; it includes the Holy Crown, the orb, the sceptre and a Renaissance sword. Other notable attractions are the numbered cigar-holders that line the window sills outside the debate chambers. Smoking politicians left their cigars in the holders, when they went in to vote. When they returned they could easily find their cigars, if they remembered the number of the holder. the ceiling frescoes by Károly Lotz the impressive Grand Staircase sweeping from the main entrance to the Dome Hall the imposing Dome Hall and 16 statues of Hungarian leaders in it Hunters' Hall is one of the fascinating rooms surrounding the Dome Hall from the Danube side, stunning frescoes adorn its walls beautiful painted glass windows by Miksa Róth
  • History of Budapest Parliament Until the 19th century the Hungarian diet held its sessions in different parts of the county. In the Reform Era the idea of a "House of a Motherland" became more and more popular. Constructions began in 1884 and lasted for two decades. It opened in 1902, although it should have been finished by 1896 for the Millennium to celebrate the 1000th anniversary of Hungary's foundation. Leaders of the country chose the Pest bank of the Danube as premise, to counterweight the Royal Palace rising high on the other side of the river. The architect, Imre Steindl got his inspirations for the design from London's Houses of Parliament. After World War II the diet became single-chambered and the government uses only a small portion of the building today. In the communist regime a red star perched on the top of the dome that was removed in 1990. Mátyás Szűrös declared the Hungarian Republic from the balcony facing Kossuth Lajos tér on 23rd October in 1989. The Hungarian Parliament has 386 members that are elected every 4 year.
  • Architecture of Budapest Parliament Budapest Parliament represents one of the city's many architectural masterpieces. Its neo-Gothic main style and the river-side location make it very similar to London's Houses of Parliament. The architect, Imre Steindl mixed medieval features with national and his own style. The result is an eclectic classic. A Renaissance dome crowns a neo-Gothic facade that lies on a Baroque base ground. The main cupola is decorated with statues of Hungarian kings. Fierce turul birds guard the main entrance. The interior decor is mainly neo-Gothic.
  • Other Attractions Nearby Budapest Parliament Museum of Ethnograpy (Néprajzi Múzeum) Address: Kossuth Lajos tér 12., V. district, behind the Parliament building Permanent and temporary exhibits on national and world cultures. This Renaissance palace is one of the most pleasant museums in Budapest. It often houses interesting and unusual exhibitions.
