The Hungarian Parliament Building, at night, shows this very interesting feature. Can you notice the bright streaks in the sky? They are caused by dozens of birds that continuously fly over the building attracted by the lights. The long exposure has captured their trajectories in the light they reflected, creating this unusual effect.
The Hungarian Parliament Building is the seat of the National Assembly of Hungary, one of Europe's oldest legislative buildings, a notable landmark of Hungary and a popular tourist destination of Budapest. It lies in Lajos Kossuth Square, on the bank of the Danube. It is currently the largest building in Hungary and still the highest building in Budapest.
The Parliament Building is in the Gothic Revival style; it has a symmetrical facade and a central dome. The dome is Renaissance Revival architecture. Also from inside the parliament is symmetrical and thus has two absolutely identical parliament halls out of which one is used for the politics, the other one is used for guided tours. The main facade overlooks the River Danube, but the official main entrance is from the square on the east side of the building.
The facade displays statues of Hungarian rulers, Transylvanian leaders and famous military figures. The coats of arms of kings and dukes are depicted over the windows. The east stairs is flanked by two lions.
