Officially the Republic of Hungary is a parliamentary republic. Its legislature is the unicameral National Assembly, which has 386 representatives, elected for a period of four years.
It is said that the electoral system is one of the most complicated in Europe. Half of the representatives are elected in single-seat constituencies, half of them in party lists.
The Prime Minister is elected by majority vote of the members of parliament. The President of the Republic, elected for a period of five years, has a more ceremonial role. Technically, he is the Commander in Chief of the armed forces and appoints the Prime Minister. But, are you considering a guided tour of this place?
Guided visits to Parliament are available when the National Assembly is not in session. The tour lasts approximately 45 minutes and is worth the price. Walk the stairs and the lobby of the main entrance, one of the hallways, the old House of Lords and the jewels of the Hungarian crown.
Some of the best views of Parliament are from the Danube or from the other side of the river. Especially from Batthyány Square, which is just one metro stop from Kossuth Square on the M2 line. Looking at Parliament from a distance makes it easier to appreciate the beauty and harmony of the building.
As the Hungarian Parliament building cannot be visited without a guide, it is strongly recommended to plan the date of the tour in Budapest. Moreover, since you can book comfortably online, in advance, without having to queue for a limited number of surplus tickets that may not be suitable for your plans.
Guided tours in the Hungarian Parliament, Budapest, are conducted daily in most major European languages. Keep in mind that during parliamentary sessions and other official receptions, guided tours in Parliament are canceled or postponed without notice.
Visits to the Hungarian Parliament must be booked in advance due to the limited number of places available on a given day. Visits include a visit and a guided tour of the Hungarian Parliament building. In addition, a guided tour within the Parliament with a visit to the jewels of the Hungarian crown.
Most of the beauties inside can also be photographed. However, the security check in the section and the Crown Jewels Dome Hall are two exceptions. Here remarkably it is not allowed to take photos (in other parts of the tour inside the Parliament building is allowed).
Upon entering the Hungarian Parliament building, the guards of the Parliament will carry out a security check. You can only enter Parliament if you let the guards check you.
This is a routine check for the security of the building, the Crowning Jewels and the Hungarian nation. You can speed up the security control process if you cooperate with the Guards. Guards should check larger bags, backpacks and packages. So, if you can, visit the Budapest Parliament without bulky luggage or hand luggage.
