|About these ratings|
Completed in 1904, the Hungarian Parliament Building is one of Budapest's most famous landmarks. The National Assembly of Hungary still meets there to this day. Travelers come mainly to take in the building's architecture (primarily Gothic Revival style), beautiful statues and paintings, and national significance. According to many, there is no structure in Hungary that serves as a better symbol of the country's independence and commitment to democracy.
The easiest way to get to the Parliament Building is through the Lajos Kossuth Square metro station. Admission isn't cheap—entrance to the building will cost you 3,500 HUF (about $16 USD) but it's free for EU citizens. For an extra charge, guided tours in English are available.
