With politics commandeering social media feeds and news sources lately, this week’s Bucket List offers a different perspective of government and brings you seven impressive legislative buildings around the world. From the U.S. Capitol Building to the Great Hall of the People in China, these structures are architecturally impressive, historically rich and politically relevant. All are open to the public for a peek behind the walls where the world’s politicians rule.
