The Hungarian Parliament

The Hungarian Houses of Parliament really are breathtaking from up close. The building is a curious mix of classical and medieval values: domed and symmetrical on the one hand, endowed with spires and other gothic (neogothic) elements on the other. Hungarians say that the Parliament is in the "Romantic style".

The building really is massive and breathtaking, the largest Parliament in Europe, harking back to the days when Hungary was an administrative center for the Austrio-Hungarian monarchy, the biggest player in Europe.
