The Hungarian Parliament Building (Hungarian: Országház, Hungarian pronunciation: which translates to House of the Country or House of the Nation) is the seat of the National Assembly of Hungary, one of Europe's oldest legislative buildings, a notable landmark of Hungary and a popular tourist destination of Budapest. It lies in Lajos Kossuth Square, on the bank of the Danube. It is currently the largest building in Hungary and still the tallest building in Budapest.
Budapest is the capital and the largest city of Hungary, and one of the largest cities in the European Union. It is the country's principal political, cultural, commercial, industrial, and transportation centre, sometimes described as the primate city of Hungary. In 2011, according to the census, Budapest had 1.74 million inhabitants, down from its 1989 peak of 2.1 million due to suburbanization. The Budapest Metropolitan Area is home to 3.3 million people. The city covers an area of 525 square kilometres within the city limits. Budapest became a single city occupying both banks of the river Danube with a unification on 17 November 1873 of west-bank Buda and Óbuda with east-bank Pest.

You took this Hungarian Parliament Building on a wonderful way, with clarity and sharpness.
A nice perspective with depth and super wide image.
Excellent composition, lovely presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

A famous and very impressive building. It is most often seen from the Buda hills, so this POV is slightly different from most photos. I like the mild colours and the fine sharpness of your photo.

parliment buildings are often a wonderful architectural subject - these are some of the best.
Very popular, very famous.
its nice to see them this close up, as most often we see them taken from a distance.
good job in keeping then horizontally level on this angle, thats hard to do.
enjoy your weekend
