The Parliament

If the Royal Palace is the focal point of the Buda side, the building of the Parliament, on the opposite side of the Danube, is the nerve center of Pest. The parliament is a very popular tourist attraction in Budapest, as it is an amazing building and it is the biggest building in Hungary! The building expands on 268 meters along the Danube river and boasts of an incredible number of chambers (690), courtyards (10) and entrances (10). The Parliament building is the seat of the unicameral National Assembly, but several parts, including the superb dome room, in which is kept in the crown of Saint Stephen, can be admired during a guided visit.
