The Parliament of Budapest, which has become the symbol of the Capital, is the seat of the National Assembly of Hungary. Located in Pest, the Eastern side, the project by the Hungarian architect Imre Steindl was designed in neo-Gothic style – with a symmetrical façade and a central dome – and was built between 1880 and 1902.
The alluvial soil of the Danube Eastern bank had to be reinforced by a two-meter-deep concrete foundation so that it could support the colossal building, which is 268 meters long and 123 meters at its greatest width. The Parliament has 10 courts, 27 gates, and 29 staircases.
The exterior of the building is adorned with lace-like Gothic pinnacles and 88 statues representing Hungarian rulers, princes, and military commanders. On the Danube, an unbroken line of arcades dominates the building, with neo-Gothic and neo-Renaissance motifs. In the central part of the building, in Kossuth Lajos tér, is the main entrance, flanked by bronze lions, behind which the ornamental staircase leads to the hall under the dome.

The legendary Café Gerbeaud, in the heart of Budapest, is one of the largest, oldest, and most famous coffee shop in Europe, which was opened in 1858. Gerbeaud’s specialties include famous cakes, such as Eszterházy and Dobos, as well as every sort of cream cakes, extravagant bakery products and delicious ice-creams.

According to the website We love Budapest, vet students have the most spectacular and cosiest university campus in Budapest. The idea of founding a veterinary school in Pest emerged more than 200 years ago, and in 1787 the University of Pest was among the first institutions to establish a veterinary science department within its Faculty of Medicine, which is now highly esteemed worldwide. The protected monument complex of pavilion buildings was originally designed by Imre Steindl, the innovative Magyar architect known for designing the Parliament House in Budapest.
The core buildings were erected in the last decades of the 19th century in neo-renaissance style. Elizabethtown, where the campus is located, at that time was a suburb, now it is a beautiful downtown park.
During the walk, Vet students will provide interesting information on the past and present of the Campus, such as on the sculptures of the great ancestors in the ‘Park of Fame’, on the sculpture of the founding father of veterinary education in Budapest, etc.
Also, you will be able to visit the ornate reading room of the Library and the veterinary historical museum.
