"India and Hungary have great, strain-free relations and people-to-people contact. The Parliament is open to tourists and visitors, except for some places like the main chamber. It is a public monument in that regard," Petho told to some news agency.

  • Its imposing edifice was built in a neo-gothic style based on the plans of architect Imre Steindl.
  • There are a total of 242 full-figure statues on the façades and in the interior spaces of the Parliament building. Prominent among these are the 88 glazed, coloured ceramic statues, depicting contemporary Hungarian agriculture and industry crafts, as well as modern urban professions and science.

  • In keeping with the lines of gothic architecture, the side walls of the Parliament building were perforated by colourful leaded glass windows, which refers to a preferred window art technique of the time.
  • The monumental wall and ceiling paintings depict 1,000 years of Hungarian history, as well as 20th-century political changes. These pieces portray noteworthy scenes of both heroic and tragic Hungarian history, as well as allegories.
