    What to Expect
    Discover the memories of Pest of the 1800-1900s on this 3-hour walking tour. Learn the secrets of the impressive buildings, mysterious monuments, and silent statues in the heart of the city.

    Hear stories of how Hungary felt about being the spouse of Austria during the time of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy, and why Sissi was so keen about the Hungarians. Also learn about how one of the most important kingdoms of Europe got broken up after WWI.

    Listen to stories about Hungary's role in the WWII, and about the consequences of their 'liberation' by the Soviet troops. Hear how the country survived the first years of heavy dictatorship, and how the desperate desire for freedom led to the 1956 revolution. Be introduced to the heroes and see the monuments commemorating them. You'll learn more about ‘Goulash Communism’ and how Hungary became the ‘happiest barrack in the communist camp’ despite all of the madness of the Stalinist era.
