  Parliament: the Deputy Council Chamber
by Cristian_Uluru

After the Lounge the Deputies there is the beautiful Deputy Council Chamber: it is 25 m deep, 23 m in length and 17 m high at its extremes. The warm brown of the Slavonian oak, a deservedly famous building and decoration material, gives the room its color. Inside the council chamber are 438 specially designed leather chairs for the deputies, while the velvet-upholstered seats in the inner circle are reserved for the ministers of the government. Near the speaker's lectern there are two paintings: the symbolic birth of the Austro-Hungarian Dual Monarchy on the left and Palatine István on 5 July 1848 opening the first session of the first Hungarian popular representative assembly on the right.
