no... Austria were definately in charge and took a lot of Hungarian money

Austria has always been the more important part of the country but in the late 19th century Hungary also grew a lot both in wealth and importance. After the so-called 'Agreement' in 1867 Hungary was no more a province but a semi-independent part of the empire enjoying the same status as Austria. So I think it is absolutely not surprising that we needed and could afford such a huge building, Budapest was sort of an imperial capital.

Wow, the Norwegian one looks great, too! In this topic my favourite is the Turkish one. It's some kind of mixture: its quite modern, the interior looks great and the gardens give a perfect (a bit old-lookin) exterior design to it. Great! I like the Hungarian one, too, but neither our politicians deserve such a beautiful building.

I don't have any pictures, but I can tell you France didn't have a proper parliament. Actually, the french parliament has got two entities : "le sénat" in the "palais du luxembourg" and "l'assemblée nationale" in the "palais bourbon". it's called bicameralism.

Actually, the only real parliament we have is in "le chateau de Versailles", it happens rarely both entities meet together.

The neo-classic style building are boring and pretentious IMO. I much prefer the gothic and contemporary style parliamentry buildings the Brasil one is v good, also the Dutch one needs a mention as others built in their own coutries original style.

I wouldn't say your ignorant, but i don't think i agree with you

I think what people from around the world recognize is Big Ben. It's with out any doubts one of the most famous structure in the world. It's a symbol of London just like the bridge, and everybody recognize it.

But that doesn't mean that people know that the rest of the building is the parliamentry house.

I would vote for the USA Capitol as the most recognizable of all

Wow, that Hungarian parliament building in Budapest is fantabulous! I saw it from the outside, but never knew the inside was so impressively opulent!

Colombia's "Capitolio Nacional"

The Colombian parliament building houses the chamber of the senate and the chamber of representatives.
