Charles Bridge is a stone Gothic bridge that connects the Old Town and Lesser Town (Malá Strana). It was actually called the Stone Bridge (Kamenný most) during its first several centuries. Its construction was commissioned by Czech king and Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV and began in 1357. In charge of the construction was architect Petr Parléř whose other works include the St. Vitus Cathedral at the Prague Castle. The bridge was built from Bohemian sandstone. It is also said that egg yolks were mixed into the mortar to strengthen the construction of the bridge. The bridge is 516 metres (1,692 ft) long and nearly 10 metres (33 ft) wide, resting on 16 arches shielded by ice guards. 📸: @jerzy.michalka, @care4art, @ournextflight, @vetrana, @seckinyilmaz #architectanddesign

The Hungarian Parliament building was designed by Imre Steindl, one of the greatest Hungarian architects ever. The construction started in 1885 and the building was inaugurated on the 1000th anniversary of the country in 1896, and has been fully completed in 1904. During the construction, workers used 40 million bricks, half a million precious stones and 40 kilograms (88 lbs.) of gold. From inside, the Parliament is symmetrical and thus has two absolutely identical parliament halls out of which one (House of Commons) is used for the politics, the other one (House of Lords) is used for guided tours these days. Standing at 268m (879ft) long, 123m (404ft) wide and 96m (314.9ft) tall, the Hungarian Parliament is the country’s largest building, Budapest’s tallest, and the third largest parliament building in the world. Inside its grand walls there are 691 rooms, 10 courtyards and 12.5 miles worth of stairs. Architecturally, the building is in the Gothic Revival style with a Renaissance Revival style dome. 📸: @peter.rajkai, @aron_felszeghy, @cbuiron, @krenn_imre, @42_bit, @s.z.a.theory #architectanddesign
