Visitors must join a guided tour to enter, though sometimes the building opens to the public for concerts. For a more comprehensive day in Budapest, combine a tour of Parliament with a Danube River cruise, city sightseeing tour, or Hungarian folklore performance.

Architecture of Parliament

Imre Steindl designed this striking edifice after winning a design competition in 1873. The eclectic building—with its neo-Gothic, medieval, and baroque styles—wasn’t fully completed until 1902. It took nearly 40 million bricks to construct, and the outside facade features 90 stone sculptures of figures from Hungarian history.
