"Parliament" Parliament - Orszaghaz Tip by leffe3

Parliament - Orszaghaz, Budapest: 160 reviews and 330 photos

The most photographed building in Budapest sits proudly on a bend in the Danube dominating the Pest side of the river bank. There are numerous viewpoints on both sides of the river - as well as any number of pleasure craft on their way to Margarit Island.

Built in 1902, it's a spectacular building with some 700 rooms and 18 courtyards. Sadly, it surface is a porous limestone which does not hold up to pollution and is constantly being renovated in parts - so more often than not, part of the building is covered in scaffolding at any one time.

Address: 1055 Budapest, Kossuth tér 1-3.
Directions: On Kossuth Lajos ter; metro M2, trams #2 2A, trolley-buses #70 78 and bus #15 to Kossuth Lajos ter stop
Phone: + (36) 1 441-4000
