Parliament and the Danube east bank

The east bank of the Danube is peppered with beautiful buildings, notably the Art Nouveau Gresham Palace (now the Four Seasons Hotel) on Roosevelt tér and the unmissable Parliament, Hungary’s biggest building. The Parliament houses the old Coronation Regalia, including national hero St Stephen’s crown, sceptre and orb, and its impressive interior features sweeping staircases and a 96m-high gilded central dome. There are daily tours of the building – in English – if parliamentary business allows.
