They wanted the biggest parliament in the world. It's still the second one in size i think. Desire for greatness.

It stands right on the shores, it certainly is an sight.
Maybe the most famous building of Budapest is the parliament. It´s situated on the banks of the Danube and it´s so beautiful with all the little towers etc.
Another neo-Gothic building situated on the banks of the River Danube. It is the home of the Hungarian parliament.
Budapest's Parliment houses does not need explaination, but it is one of the most intriquing buildings in the city.
Parliament - a classic case of Neo-Gothic and Baroque architecture styles. Entry to the parliament is restricted and I believe it's granted only on a group tour basis.
Dominating the skyline of Pest, this grand building with its neo-Gothic dome offers tours in English.
Very impressive building, seen best from the Danube, while taking a boat trip, and from the Buda's hills. This picture is taken from Elizabeth bridge so it shows only the lateral.
This huge néo-gothic building was completed in 1904.
The guided tour is approximately 30 minutes and it's free for the U.E résidents.(passport or I.C)
The Parliament of Budapest is one of the major sights of Budapest because of it's very distinct architecture and also it's location, ie right next to the river Danube.
I can't say much about it. I didn't go in there, but the building is a highlight allready from the outside.
