Image of the famous Hungarian Parliament on the Danube in Budapest


The Hungarian Parliament (Parlament or Országház) is a large building, inaugurated at the beginning of the 20th century, located on the eastern bank of the Danube in Budapest. Since 1902, it is the seat of the Hungarian National Assembly and houses the Parliamentary Services as well as the Library of the Hungarian National Assembly (OGyK). This building, whose volumes are organized around the central dome, has a neo-Gothic facade but a ground plan that follows baroque conventions. In 2010, it is still the largest building in Hungary and one of the largest parliaments in Europe with 18,000 m².

Like the Palace of Westminster, the Hungarian parliament has a neo-Gothic symmetrical facade. It is 268 m long and 123 m wide, has 10 courtyards, 13 elevators, 27 gates, 29 staircases and 691 rooms (including more than 200 offices). With a 96m high dome, it is one of the two tallest buildings in Budapest with St. Stephen's Basilica in Pest. The number 96 was chosen to recall the millenium of the Hungarian nation (1896) and its crossing of the Carpathians in 896. © Photo of Emmanuel Buchot
