I was quite lucky because I was the only guest in the English-language tour of the Parliament, so it was like a personal tour. My tour guide was very knowledgeable not only about the Parliament building, but also about the country's history and politics, which made for a very lively discussion during our tour.

This is such a beautiful building that an inside tour should not be missed. The tour was a bit shorter than I anticipated for the price paid. The original guide only stayed with us on the 10 minute bus drive there and to get us our tickets. Then she was gone. The tour itself was by building employees. There were only 3 sites on the tour. The first was the amazing and beautiful entryway and staircase and this was probably the highlight of the tour. Next we had a 5 minute vsit to the impressive room where the royal crown was on display along with its ceremonial guards. Next it was on to the senate chamber. This was no longer in use a senate because the senate did not exist anymore. It is used from time to time for conferences. They said the actual government chamber was nearly identical but we did not get to see it. That was the end of the tour and we were released into the massive renovation construction works outside. The building should not be missed but the tour is a bit short and relatively expensive. I am still glad I went however.

The interior of the Parliament is beautiful, and pre-booking the guided tour is a must. You can only visit by taking a tour. Our guide was very good and the admin was excellent

We were picked up by taxi from our hotel and driven to the bus stop where we were met by our very pleasant, friendly and knowledgeable guide. Before entering the Parliament our guide took the group to a nearby neighborhood and pointed out architectural features of beautiful 19 century buildings that housed offices and residences of government officials and diplomats during the waning days of the Hapsburg Empire. The tour of the Parlament was outstanding: features of each of the chambers both in terms of the architecture and the role of each in governmental functions. She also pointed out paintings of notable persons and the beautiful decor of the building. We felt that we really learned a great deal about the building as well as the Austro-Hungarian history that took place in the buiding.
