    Thank you for the lovely photos of the inside of the Parliament building. When we were in Budapest for several days last July, we didn’t get to visit the interior.

    Wow, it is so opulent and that Grand Stairwell is stunning! Very interesting facts too. The crown is quite impressive :)

    We were in Budapest last spring but we didn’t visit the Parliament buildings. It looks really beautiful though, love your photos!
    Budapest is such a fun city. Did you go to any of the ruin bars while you were there?

    Oh, your pictures are wonderful! I visited in September last year and I didn’t have my DSLR on me, so I had to make do with crappy iPhone pictures. It is stunning though, but I didn’t care much for the guides. It’s my favourite building in the world, though, and I don’t take that lightly :)

    I always say that our parliament is the most beautiful one in the world, it is a shame that they let our politicians in:) Really nice post and pictures!!

    Budapest is just up the road and I’ve only been once – posts like these remind me that I need to return. Gorgeous building.

    What a gorgeous building and I like that you were able to take pictures inside. I’ve only ever seen the building from the outside. You’ve got some beautiful pictures of the interior. I’d be walking around with my mouth open in awe.

    This is such a beautiful building. That Grand Stairwell is fantastic, and the stained glass is unexpected to me in a government building. Whoever figured out how to cool and heat this building through a central system in the pre-electricity age must have been quite clever. Thanks for the virtual tour.

    Beautiful pictures. You make me wish we had taken the time to go inside when we visited 13 years ago (might not have been an option then). Thanks for sharing!

    […] I had a bit of a false start on my visit to the Parliament. The first time I went, I was informed that the tour for the day was only 30 minutes long instead of the regular 45 minutes, but the price was the exactly same. I decided to go back another day. Read more […]

    How wonderful! You remembered me my last visit to this amazing Parliament which I consider on top of each traveler’s list. Missing Budapest!

    Stunning Parliament building. The interiors are breathtaking as well, they used real gold to cover much of the walls… it’s really gold-plated.

    Hi Adelina, thanks for sharing this article – I want to see the inside even more now I have seen your photos – The decor looks simply fantastic! I agree, If I worked there I wouldn’t be able to concentrate at all, I’de just want to explore the building and take photos!
