The building of the House of the Nation, the Hungarian Parliament is considered to be one of the most beautiful parliament buildings in the world. The building is an invaluable treasure, the pride of the Hungarian nation and is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. This imposing edifice was built in a neo-gothic style over a period of 17 years (1885-1902) based on the plans of Imre Steindl. The express intention was to construct the building out of Hungarian materials with the work of local craftsmen and manufacturers, with the vegetation of the surrounding Carpathian Basin appearing in its ornamentation and the art the building invoking significant events from Hungarian history. The dimensions of the neo-gothic palace are commanding: the 265-meter long, 123-meter-wide building has a total of 29 gates allowing entrance into 262 numbered rooms. Upon its completion, it was one of the largest parliament buildings of the world.
