The bridges tour with Sándor was the best out of the 4 tours I did in Budapest. He took us to see amazing views, hidden spots that I would’ve never found by myself . It was a perfect combination of information about the history and architecture of the bridges, with some personal touches that you can only get from a true local. Highly recommend! Thanks for the tour, Sándor!

Vicky ist unglaublich! Wir hatten das große Glück alleine mit ihr die Tour zu machen und sie hat es so toll gemacht. Sie konnte all unsere Fragen beantworten und hat sehr interessante Fakten angesprochen. Sie hat sich immer Zeit für Fotos genommen. Wir haben uns sehr sehr wohl gefühlt und würden die Tour mit Vicky jedem empfehlen!!

Don't hesitate to book with Sándor, especially if you are into history. We really enjoyed the walk, very knowledgeable, kind and dedicated guide. No large group but an intimate walk which contributed to feel as one of the best free walks, we've done.

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.
