The Hungarian Parliament Building stands stoic during a mid-summer breeze in the middle of June. It was inaugurated on the 1,000th anniversary of Hungary in 1896 and opened eight years later in 1904.

The awesome structure that is this historical landmark is worth seeing from near and from far. Up close, its majesty humbles even the most impassive of tourists, while from afar, its colour, shape, and sheer dominance adds to Pest’s prowess as a welcoming yet exigent tourist city.
