The Parliament Building in Budapest, Hungary

Let's go travel again some cities in Europe again. This time I am sharing a bit about Budapest. And yes, I am happy to see Budapest last weekend. It is the capital of Hungary and considered to be one of Europe's most delightful and enjoyable cities.

The snapshot you see below is the Parliament Building in Budapest, also known as The Hungarian Parliament Building. It is called in Hungarian as Országház which literally means "country house". It is currently the largest building in Hungary. It is the seat of the National Assembly of Hungary and one of Europe's oldest legislative buildings. It is a popular tourist destination of Budapest being a notable landmark of Hungary.

This image was taken as we were in Castle Hill, located just across the building.

The Castle Hill - District I of Buda, the oldest part of the city containing the eponymous Castle and many of Budapest's best-known attractions (Fishermen’s Bastion, Labyrinth and Mathias Church).

The Parliament Building (Országház) is a neogothic jewel, beautifully situated overlooking the Danube. One day visit in Budapest is not enough to see everything. I wish to visit this city again to go inside the Parliament building.
