what an unusual place, I can see many people visiting just for tyre strange idea of it! The marzipan sculptors are obviously quite skilled though as this replica is really nicely made. Great subject, thanks for sharing

Magnificent image, showing us a splendid view of the model of the Parliament, the view from above, gives a good idea as both facades of the various volumes on its roof.
A bright image with optimum clarity.
Enjoy a good weekend.

This looks like an interesting museum, maybe similar to the Gingerbread museum in Toruń ;-). The guards must make sure that small visitors don't eat the collection. This replica of the Hungarian Parliament is very impressive and this photo shows it well.
