The famous view of the Hungarian Parliament Building faces the Danube. This eastern façade adjoining Lajos Kossuth Square is equally impressive. This is the Parliament’s main entrance. Arrive early for your tour so you have extra time to study the intricate details. Two lions guard the three-arched portal. Your eye will travel up to statues of historic Hungarian leaders plus the crests of nobility and dukes. At the pinnacle is Hungary’s coat of arms. It features two angels holding a shield topped with the Crown of Saint Stephen. The Holy Crown was used since the 12th century to coronate over 50 Hungarian kings.
