The stunning Budapest Parliament is almost unmissable and is probably one of the most famous buildings in Hungary. It took nineteen years to build and construction began in 1885. There were an average of 1,000 builders working on the project around the clock and today it stands magnificently with its 18,000 square metres of space, 268 metres in length and 96 metres high.
The country's Crown Jewels are stored in the famous Cupola Room, flanked by statues of the Hungarian kings. All the rooms in Parliament are decorated in gold and adorned with red velvet carpets.
