    The most beautiful government building I've ever seen. Made in neogothic style, it looks stunning both day and night time. But admission fee is frustrating: 20 € (non-EU) for 30 min with a group tour.

    Top notch building in Hungary, a neo-gothic palace with neo-Renaissance dome. Built for the 1000 yr anniversary of the Hungarians in 1896 (but finished in 1902). Best views at sunset across the Danube

    Architectonical monument of whole Budapest- it's so huge that you can see its part quite from all parts of the city.Below it's a riverwalk path,from which you can take snaps of it,especially at night.

    The most amazing building in Budapest. The visit is short but worth it for the low price. Buy the ticket in advance, they sell out. You won't miss much if you take the tour in another language.

    Don't wait in long line for newly discovered roman treasure like we did (even it is for free), buy ticket for guided tour in Museum of Ethnography opposite the parliament. No knifes, pepper sprays...

    Stunning building,definitelly worth visiting.Though the tour is 40 mins long, pricy for non-EU citizens, guide's English is not good,but still it's very interesting to see the building from the inside

    Incredibly beautiful architecture. Definitely worth a visit at night to see it all lit up.

    Definitely worth having a look inside although the ticket price is rather high for the value of the tour. Be sure to arrive 5 minutes in advance.
  • Kasia K.
    Beautiful building, also by night. Go inside (buy ticket on Internet), worth to see.

    You can go inside only with guided tour groups. Book online and bring ids or passports. Waiting in the queue to book a tour is a waste of time. Tours last ~ 30'.

    Tours are half price to those with an EU passport, so bring yours along if you have one. There's no cloakroom, so avoid having a heavy backpack or bag with you if you can.

    Make sure you get to the ticket office (in the opposite museum)early. The wait can take 1hour+, even at 9am! Take Identity documents too, or risk being refused. Discount for UK citizens (50% off).

    From time to time there's guard change ceremony outside of the parliament, but it's too much theatrical.The real guard change takes place inside in the Dome Chamber where the King's crown is excibited
