Communist Tour of Budapest with private driver and guide
From 62 Euro
If you want to travel back in time and learn about the communist era of Budapest, this will be a very interesting tour, led by a professional guide with private transport to and from your Budapest accommodation.
Your first stop will be Kossuth Square, where the opulent Parliament building is situated. This was a very important scene of the Hungarian freedom fight where the Prime Minister, Imre Nagy held his famous speech. Soon we reach Liberty square, a place heavily loaded with history and legends, full of memories of the past both underground and above.
Our next stop will be The House of Terror, a modern piece of art representing the Iron Curtain. This museum goes into details about the fascist and the soviet history of the country of Budapest. It is a fitting memorial to those who died under this rule. It gives lots of information into the complex political history of Hungary. Next to the museum is Heroes’ Square that looked a little different back in those times, now a UNESCO site.
Our most scenic stop will be the Liberty statue on top of Gellert hill, overlooking the mighty River Danube and Pest. The statue was first erected in 1947 in remembrance of what was then referred to as the Soviet liberation of Hungary during WW2 which ended the occupation by Nazi Germany.
Our last stop will be the communist statue park just outside of Budapest.
With this comprehensive 4 hour tour you will be able to enjoy travelling back in time.
