History and teachings
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 the Hungarian Holy Crown, 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.
Architect of the gothic building of House of Parliament, Imre Steindl studied and worked in Vienna, Austria and Paris, France too. His buildings are also found in present-day Slovakia and Romania.
