When you think of Budapest, what do you imagine? The Parliament, the Heroes' Square, the Szechenyi Thermal Baths, strolling along the Danube River? Your wish is my command! All that and much more is what you will see in the General Free Tour of Imperial Pest.
We are waiting for you next to the Ministry of Agriculture. And in front of the Parliament of Budapest we will tell you how Hungary became the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and how they lost everything in just over 50 years?..... An exciting story that will captivate you.
Of course we will also go to the Danube River, to enjoy the breathtaking views of Buda and the Chain Bridge.
After visiting the Parliament and its surroundings, we will go to the Freedom Square, a place full of symbolism, as it was the old Bastille of Budapest. And where today there are 2 controversial monuments, which will leave you with your mouth open. The Monument to the Soviet Heroes and the Monument to the victims of the Holocaust.
Of course, we can't miss St. Stephen's Basilica, another impressive Imperial building. Did you know that a soccer legend rests inside? And that a holy relic is kept inside? At this point of the tour we will take a break so you can go inside and visit it.
After the basilica, let's get dressed up! It's time to walk along Andrassy Avenue, the most Imperial, luxurious and expensive of Budapest, to get to the Opera! In this area we will tell you who was the real Empress Sisi. We will dismantle the myth of the movies and you will be amazed with the "historical tidbits" of this character.
Then, we are going to literally take a trip back in time. Because the oldest subway of the European continent, a real relic, will leave us at the Heroes' Square, so take out your camera and enjoy!
We will pass through the Varosliget Park, the green lung of Budapest where you can also see the impressive Széchenyi Thermal Baths.
And last but not least, we will finish in a magical environment, the Vajdhyunyad Castle, where you will learn about the legend of Vlad Draculea (the original Count Dracula) Be careful! Because in Budapest vampires are on the loose.
