The Parliament building is a little over 100 years and is built in a Neo-Gothic architectural design, although one can still see traces of the Renaissance and Baroque styles. The tender for the construction of the building was opened in 188o, and the building commenced in 1885. In 1896, the building was inaugurated to commemorate the 1000th anniversary of Hungary. The building was fully completed in 1902. Opposite the Parliament building is the Museum of Ethnography and the Museum of Agriculture. Both of these buildings’ designs were runner-ups in the tender for the Parliament building. The Parliament building is vast and has 691 rooms, 20 km of stairs and is 96 meters tall. During the Communist era, a red star was added to the central tower, but it was taken down after the fall of Communism.
