Chances are if you're coming to Budapest, you're going home with a memory card chock full of photos of this bad boy, the city's most iconic building. Budapest Parliament was completed in 1902 (too late to join in Budapest's millenium celebrations in 1896) at a time when the Hungarian Empire stretched from the Tatras to the North all the way to the Adriatic Sea in the South West. Its grand neo-gothic architecture say something of Hungary's power at the time, when it became the biggest parliament building in the world. English tours take place every day at 10am, 12pm and 2pm. Bring proof of EU citizenship and you get in for free.

Surely the Budapest parliament is the most beautiful in the world? Something special indeed. The tour was very insightful although nothing beats the view from across the Danube on the Castle
A fantastic building! Hats off to the architects on this one... I'll eat my Justin Timberlake-style hat if you don't go home with at least twenty shots of this one on your camera
