Budapest’s Golden Assembly
Standing on the banks of the Danube River, the Hungarian Parliament Building is a stunning example of neo-Gothic architecture. Commissioned in 1880, it took over 1,000 people and 24 years to build. Unless you know your way around, it’s easy to get lost in this massive structure, which features 10 courtyards and hundreds of offices linked by an endless array of corridors. Aside from being home to Hungary’s National Assembly, the building also houses the nation’s crown, worn by 50 rulers, dating back to the 12th century.
