Hello travelers! We are a group of guides happy to live and work in Budapest! With degrees in History of Art and Tourism. And after years of experience in the city, we have come up with the recipe for the perfect free tour: INGREDIENTS: -300 grams of history (just enough so that you don't get saturated) -150 grams of legends -several tablespoons of curiosities, gossip and news - "salt shaker" to the taste of the guide -A handful of tricks so that you learn to move around the city - A guide wanting to enjoy yourself - A motivated public PREPARATION: We start by adding the 300 grams of history, because every tour has to start with a good historical context. But immediately we add 150 grams of legends to the mixture in small doses and stir well until a well-homogeneous and balanced dough is left. Let it rest and add salt to taste until you start to hear a few laughs. That is the signal that tells you that the mix is on the right track. It is then the right time to add several spoonfuls of curiosities, gossip and current affairs, always at the request of the diner. All this is put in the oven for 2 and a half hours at maximum power. And to avoid that the dough does not drop, go adding tricks and recommendations. If the steps have been followed well, we assure you a good free tour. And if the recipe is also made in Budapest, success is guaranteed!

We will transfer to the Astoria Hotel. Where we will tell you how they ate in the Soviet period. Did you know that Stalin came to create his own recipe book? And that they went crazy with preserves? And after the fall of the Iron Curtain comes a unique cultural movement in Budapest, the famous Ruin Bars! Why did they arise? And of course, we will teach you to order beer and toast in Hungarian! But be careful, because toasting with beer in the city is not well seen ... We will walk to Egyetem ter, where the oldest university in the city is located. There we will tell you about the curious variety of international restaurants that there are. (Ukrainian, Georgian) Our next stop is at Café Central, a refuge for poets and writers. Bohemian nights and clandestine gatherings How did Budapest become the capital with the most cafes in Europe at the end of the s. XIX? We will tell you. We will stop at Parisi Udvar.
