For a frontal shot of the Houses of Parliament, the best spot is just across the river (Batthyany tér underground stop on Line 2, or Halasz utca if you’re looking for a parking spot). There’s a promenade all along the Buda side, so you have a lot of options to find the most interesting angle. It’s worth taking at least one full frontal shot – incidentally, with a 35mm lens the facade fits right into the frame. There’s a lot of room to set up a tripod as well if you’re going for a night shot. Watch out for bikers on the promenade when you work with a tripod – they tend to ride like there’s no tomorrow. The building faces West and gets a warm, lovely light around 5-8pm during the summer. At sunrise it’s backlit from the right (when facing the building).
