On the bank of the Danube stands one of the world's most
beautiful parliament buildings, an imposing sight and a prominent
feature of the city's panorama. With its red dome, white stone lace
ornamentation and spires, it is the city's most decorative
structure. Stone lions flank the entrance guarding a rich interior
of marble and gold, statues and columns, and magnificent artefacts,
including the 1,000-year-old crown of the first Hungarian King, all
of which can be viewed on a guided tour. The grand edifice,
stretching for 820 ft (250m) along the embankment, is one of the
biggest national assemblies in the world.
