Photographer's Note

View of the parliament building in Budapest, Hungary.

The photo is taken from the other side of the Danube river, at the blue hour, just a couple of minutes after the lights illuminating the building were turned on.

This is the second largest parliament building in Europe and it was constructed between 1885 and 1896, specifically designed for its final use. According to Wikipedia, "About one thousand people were involved in construction, during which 40 million bricks, half a million precious stones and 40 kilograms (88 lb) of gold were used.".
