I hope you do know the history of the building. In my opinion one of the most ridiculous building projects ever.

Very nice picture. Serbian Parliament is much better looking than Ukrainian, in my opinion that is.

Another one of ours

Polish parliment - nothing special



The Sejm chamber designed by Kazimierz Skórewicz. Contemporary view from Wiejska Street. Decision to build a special seat for the Polish Parliament was taken in 1925, already after the regaining of independence by Poland in 1918. The inauguration of the new building took place on 27 March 1928, the day of the first convening of the Sejm of the second term.

Is this building the one, which used to be Chauchescu's residence? The one, to build which whole beautiful historic district was destroyed?

I do not agree. Our parliment is obviously not as impressing as the Hungarian one, but it is quite special. At least for me. I don't know, if you know, where this peculiar shape of the building comes from.

It was supposed to resemble the giant tents, in which the kings of Polish-Lithuenian Commonwealth, were elected (like on the very kitschy painting below). So it's quite an interesting project.

In my opinion, Hungarian Parliament wins. Ukrainian is alright, and I don't think the Polish is that great.

Polish one is very modest. It's hidden between the trees so there aren't any good pics of it:

Hungarian wins it by a mile.

Serbian parliament building also seems to be quite imposing.

As far as I know the Romanian building has cost an absolute fortune in both finance and people. I am glad it is far from the centre because Bucharest has some very nice architecture which would have been spoiled by that monstruosity.
It also took forever to complete and is sadly such a huge waste of Romanian money, compliments of Causescu who was the architect of this grotesque building. He used to change his mind all the time and have the designs modified over and over again. It must have been a nightmare to built and it will be a nightmare to maintain. What an eyesore...
