      Houses of Parliament, also known as Stormont, located in the same area of ​​Belfast, and is home to the residence of the Northern Ireland Assembly and Northern Ireland Executive.

      Need for a separate parliament building came with the creation of the municipal government of Northern Ireland in 1920. Initially planned for the Parliament a large domed building, but the architect August Arnold Thornley dismissed the proposal, providing its own building project in the classical Greek style without the dome, which was implemented by 16 November 1932.

      The central part of the facade is decorated with spectacular іanіchnay columns, and around the building in 1932, was erected a statue of Sir Edward Carson - famous Irish lawyer and politician.

      December 3, 2005 at the Great Hall of the parliament held a funeral ceremony of former national team player and Northern Ireland club "Manchester United" football player George Best - only this room could accommodate all the people who wanted to say goodbye to a legend of football.
