The darkest periods of the Hungarian capital have passed into history, but these relics of the past still attract visitors. The exhibitions of the House of Terror embraces two periods of 20th century dictatorships and a visit to the Sculpture Park is a real time travel to the controversial era of the "working socialism". And those who are interested in the architecture and atmosphere of the Communist Budapest will also not be without experiences and impressions.
The Jewish heritage means a deservedly famous attraction: Budapest boats the largest Neolog Synagogue, the Jewish quarter and its special atmosphere attract visitors with small kosher restaurants, as well as many bars and clubs, popular among artists and the young generations. The vicinity of Nagymező Street, known as the "Broadway of Budapest" today is the meeting place for the art world. Besides these Jewish related sights of 7th district, the atmosphere of Újlipótváros, north of Margaret Bridge, and the first jewish historical memories in the Castle District also fits perfectly into our walk.
Capital of culinary delights
In Budapest you can find everything if you are a fan of culinary tourism. Besides the different-priced and styled retro or modern restaurants and taverns there are familiar eating houses, market-canteens left from the past on the culinary-map of the Hungarian capital. As a Hungarian company, we primarily recommend those places that you cannot find anywhere else: first of all, the famous local cuisine, amongst guaranteed original sceneries. Besides dishes, do not forget drinks: depending on your taste, we offer a visit to a beer- or champagne factory, a wine tasting, or perhaps an insight into the world of our famous short drink, distilled of different fruits, the Hungarian pálinka.
The Never-Seen Budapest
All that is special or unique in Budapest, as you compose it based on your personal needs! Some possibilities: round trip amongst ruin pubs; what happened to the magnitude of the past or "Sic transit gloria mundi", and what are still working from the past; emblematic locations of the retro-feeling: visit to the market and the flea market; archery in the green belt of the city; what is under the shiny glaze: the crumbling Budapest... Ideal completion of earlier Budapest-memories!
Styles, façades and roofs
During our walk it is not always worth looking exclusively at what is in front of us: Budapest is a city of marvelous facades, original and neo-styles, covered roofs by colorful Zsolnay majolica!
