Witness Grandeur of Hungary’s Parliament in Delhi



New Delhi: At a time when the nation is busy chosing its own parliamentarians, the breathtaking architecture of the Parliament building of Hungary, a UNESCO World Heritage site built in the neo-gothic style from 1885-1902, will soon be seen in an exhibition in the national capital.

The exhibition, titled “The Hungarian National Assembly”, will showcase photographs capturing the splendour of the heritage building. Arranged by the Museum of the Hungarian National Assembly, the exhibition will run from May 18-27 at the India International Centre here.

Located on the banks of the Danube river in Budapest, Hungary’s Parliament is one of the largest in the world. To throw in some facts, the 265 metre long and 123 metre wide building has a total of 29 gates allowing entrance into 262 numbered rooms. How it came to be constructed is a story in itself. (IANS)
