Pest side tour: Days of glory

If you’d like to see the city’s cultural and architectural growth through the centuries, come with us to the versatile Pest side! The bustling city of Pest cannot wait to to be explored. Join us to not only see but really experience the city. Learn more about the 2000-year-long bath culture, our connection  to Attila the Hun, our origins, the Hungarian Millennium and the evolution of our culture in the restless heart of Europe.

Itinerary: we start with the UNESCO site of Count Andrássy’s prestigious Avenue dotted with numerous gems along its length and ending in the embrace of the monumental Heroes’ Square and the magical City Park beyond. In the park we take you to Budapest’s fairytale castle and show you the beautiful building of the Széchenyi Bath. We'll reveal stories of the 1956 Uprising by the House of Terror Museum and on the way we peek into the Hungarian State Opera House. We'll ride on the second oldest subway in the world, the Millenium Railway, too.

Then we take you to one of the most visited attractions of Budapest, the St. Stephen’s Basilica, where we relate our transition to Christianity together with the earlier beliefs of Hungarians.

In the Jewish quarter you'll see why we call the area the bohemian quarter of the city, and discover the sights around the Dohány Street Great Synagogue. During the tour we also visit the Central Market Hall to get familiar with some traditional local treats.

We’ll also guide you through the most turbulent periods of Hungarian history from revolutions to peace and from peace to terror as experienced in the 20th century. On the ironically named Liberty Square in the governmental district the devil is in the details. We round off the tour with perhaps the most remarkable of buildings in Pest: our House of Parliament.
