The Eclectic-style Parliament, designed by Imre Steindl and completed in 1902, has 691 sumptuously decorated rooms, but you’ll only get to see several on a guided tour of the North Wing: the main staircase and landing; the Domed Hall, where the Crown of St Stephen , the nation’s most important national icon, is on display; the Loge Hall; and the Congress Hall, where the House of Lords of the one-time bicameral assembly sat until 1944.

The building is a blend of architectural styles – neo-Gothic, neo-Romanesque, neobaroque – and in sum it works very well. You can join a tour in any of eight languages, but to avoid disappointment book ahead on site or through Jegymester .
