The building of Hungary's law-making body, the House of Parliament, is rightly considered among the most beautiful parliaments buildings in the world. Selected as a World Heritage site as a central element in the Danube panorama in 2011, the edifice is not only an invaluable treasure, but also the pride of the nation. It provides a home for the legislature, a place of safekeeping for Saint Steven's Holy Crown and the Royal Insignia , and a workplace both for the 199 Members of Parliament and for the nearly 600 people who assist them. Currently, the building also houses the offices of the Prime Minister and his support staff.

Some interesting facts about the Parliament:

2, This is the largest building in Hungary with its 268 metres lenght, 118 metres width and its 691 rooms.
5, The height of the cupola is 96 metres which is referring to Hungary's conquest and its millenium celebrations in 1896.
