Fast Facts

Hungary’s enormous Parliament took twenty years to build. Completed in 1902, this stylish building contains 691 rooms and the Hungarian Crown Jewels.

The city’s largest church, St. Stephen's Basilica, took more than 50 years to complete during the 19th century.

This two-for-one city is divided into Buda, where you’ll discover the remarkable thermal baths and cobblestone streets of Castle Hill, and Pest, with its melting pot of culture, from the renowned Opera House to the Basilica to numerous contemporary museums.
