I had a wonderful time! It was my first experience with urban sketching and I fell in love with this way of mindful exploration of my surroundings. Buda Castle is beautiful and Cecilia made me feel very comfortable to express myself through sketching. Thank you Cecilia, and I will be back for more sketching walks!

George was a very friendly person and seemed very much interested in what he had to share with us about Budapest. It was very informative for someone like me who had just been in the city for just a couple of hours and George explained/narrated the history of the city along with information on some great places to eat, drink coffee and the places which were best for white Wine.

The best walking tour I've been to so far!!! Normally they‘re not so personal and everyone is just listening to the guide. But with Betti the atmosphere was so relaxed. We were walking through the city, she showed us all the important places there, told us about them and everyone asked their questions. She also recommended us bars and restaurants at the end. I‘ve visited some of them and they‘re great and affordable. So if you‘re in Budapest, I would highly recommend to participate at this walking tour!!!

This tour is a good introduction into the Hungarian history and to get some overview on what to explore next in the city. Also these are probably the spots which you wouldn't visit yourself without knowing these.

Budapest is a place where travellers can find a perfect combination of old and new. It combines historic buildings from the Middle Ages and its rich history with modern architecture, excellent restaurants, museums and bars.
The cultural life in Budapest is also very rich. Many of the intellectuals had to flee Hungary during the communist era, so they returned after the regime change and contributed to the trend of opening theatres, galleries and designer shops.
With this wealth comes an equally diverse range of tourist attractions in Budapest. These are not limited to museums or historic buildings, but also include other places of interest such as parks or bridges where travellers can take photographs or simply enjoy a quiet moment in nature.
But what is Communist Budapest and which places are representative of that period of the city's history? In order not to miss any detail we recommend you to book one of the Free Tours that we offer you here at GuruWalk.
It all began in 1918 with the birth of the communist movement in Budapest and ended with the revolution of 1989.
The National Museum is the landmark building to get to know Communist Budapest.
The National Museum of Budapest is located in the city centre. It has a lot of information about the history of Hungary.
The museum includes four different parts: the collections of history, archaeology, art and natural sciences. It also offers various kinds of events and workshops for visitors. The museum's exhibits are constantly changing to ensure that they give visitors new things to learn and experience every time they visit.
Many people come to this museum because it has a lot of information about the history of Hungary in its collection. However, they also have other collections, such as works of art from different countries.
The Inner City Theatre is also a representative building of the communist era.
The Inner City Theatre of Budapest is a theatre in the heart of the city, and is the only remaining Soviet-era theatre in Hungary. It was built in 1952 and has been open for about 50 years.
The Inner City Theatre was used as a cinema during the communist era, showing propaganda films that promoted communism for most of its history. Today, it still shows films and hosts various events such as concerts. It is an example of how communist Hungary tried to control culture by limiting access to art and entertainment.
The former Radio building or the Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus are also must-see sites, although Corvin köz will be the most important point to visit, as a symbolic space of the 1956 Revolution.
