The Gothic outline of Parliament is one of Budapest’s most familiar landmarks, dominating an elegant curve of the Danube close to central Pest. This architectural masterpiece was designed when Hungary extended as far as the Adriatic.

Today many of its 691 rooms remain unused but the ornamental grandeur of its staircases, frescoes, half-a-million precious stones and 40 kilograms of gold continues to impress. Parliament is also home to the Holy Crown, the royal sceptre and the orb of the first kings of Hungary.
