Altough the Parliament is very spectacular even from a big distance, to undertand how a terrific masterpiece this palace is, it`s adviceable to take a look from a closer range. From this distance you can see the little statues that ornate the facades, all the arches, the details of the lacy towers.
Note: to see this part of the Parliament, you must cross a mostly quite busy street wich goes along the Danube. There is a crosswalk near the Parliament, but there are no traffic lights. So be very careful! You can also cross the street at the chain Bridge. It`s less dangerous. You can walk till the Parliament. It`s very pleasant and you can see all the time the great view of the Buda Castle.
