DISCOVERING BUDAPEST: INTRODUCTION TO THE CITY
They say it looks like Berlin, Vienna or Paris, but remember that comparisons are odious and with this free tour you will discover that Budapest is Budapest, a city with a unique and unrepeatable personality with its own name. It is almost impossible to resume the fascinating history of Budapest in just two hours, but we can help you get to know it better through a whirlwind journey through the most relevant monuments and events of its past, calling things by their name.
We will remember the greatness of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and how it completely changed the appearance of this city, we will discover what happened during the Second World War and the true role that Hungary had as an ally of Hitler.
