The Hungarian Parliament Building (Hungarian: Országház, which translates to House of the Country or House of the Nation) is the seat of the National Assembly of Hungary, one of Europe's oldest legislative buildings, a notable landmark of Hungary and a popular tourist destination of Budapest. It lies in Lajos Kossuth Square, on the bank of the Danube. It is currently the largest building in Hungary and still the tallest building in Budapest.

HU Parliament



Introduction

Situated on the riverfront, this neo-Gothic parliament building’s likeness to London’s Houses of Parliament is only a superficial one. While the asymmetric and differently sized towers of Westminster Palace rather highlight the picturesque aspect of Gothic architecture, Budapest’s parliament is strictly symmetric and dominated by the central cupola. The Crown of St. Stephen and Hungary’s imperial insignia are kept beneath this cupola as a symbol of national independence.
