On our recent trip to Budapest, a city full of beautiful architecture, there was one building that really stood out.
The Hungarian Parliament building, which is located on the Pest side of the Danube River, is a striking example of the Gothic Revival style, built between 1896 and 1904.
With its towers and central dome, the building dominates the view from across the river.
Visitors can access the interior of the building during one of the regular tours. Unfortunately we didn’t have time to join one of these, but wandering around the square outside and along the river gave us a chance to admire the building and the statues and artworks around it.
And it looks truly stunning at night, especially with the Christmas decorations that were up during our December visit.
