FAQs about Hungarian Parliament

Why Is Budapest Parliament(Parliament of Hungary) So Famous / Important?

Hungarian Parliament, commissioned in 1885 in Budapest, was the symbol of the Hungarian aspirations toward independence from Austria. Albeit part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire since 1867, poor Hungary was tied to the wealthy Austrian Empire long before the formal unification. As the lower and middle Hungarian classes rose to prominence thanks to trade and the advancement of technology, their influence also increased. That resulted in their ability to make their own constitution and commission the parliament. Construction of the parliament began in 1885 according to the designs of Imre Steindl, who took British Houses of Parliament as an inspiration. The monumental venue was completed in 1902, remaining the largest Hungarian building ever since.

Featuring neo-Gothic architecture and Renaissance and Baroque details, the Hungarian Parliament stands at the bank of the Danube River in Pest. Dominated by slender spires and ornate decoration, the Budapest Parliament houses Hungarian crown jewels and crown in the Cupola Hall beneath the imposing dome. Statues of celebrated Hungarians decorate the most important hall of the parliament, too. Monumental stairway, featuring Corinthian columns, Byzantine elements and Renaissance details, is another highlight of the majestic structure.

Ranked as the second top attraction of Budapest on TripAdvisor, the Parliament of Hungary has an average rate of 4.5 by almost 36,500 reviews. The majority of the reviewers describe the landmark as incredible both during the day and night. Guided tours of the parliament building are available, introducing its highlights. In recent years, around 600,000 travelers visit the Budapest Parliament every year.

15 Budapest Parliament Facts

  1. Parliament of Hungary is one of the few largest parliament buildings throughout the world. The proportions of the immense structure are 268 x 118 x 96 meters (length x width x height).
  2. Renaissance dome is the tallest (96 meters) and most dominant feature of the landmark.
  3. The monumental stairway inside the structure has 96 stairs.
  4. Although incomplete, the Parliament was inaugurated in 1896, marking the 1000th anniversary of the Hungarian settlement of the area. That's why the number 96 had a great symbolism during the construction of the venue.
  5. The main architect of the parliament building didn't get to see his masterpiece completed. Before he died in 1902, in the very year when the structure was completed, he went blind.
  6. Hungarian crown dates back to 1,000 AD. Then, it was presented to Saint Stephen, the last Hungarian prince who became the first Hungarian king.

  8. Hanigan Parliament requires almost constant reconstruction, which makes it very expensive for maintaining.
  9. Soft limestone used to dominate the exterior of the parliament in the first decades of the landmark's existence. However, it was easy to damage, which led to its substitution by hard limestone after WWII.
