About the Tour

Get a personal and realistic insight into what life in Hungary was like after the Second World War, during Communism, and what has happened since.

Our Communist tour of Budapest provides our guests with an interesting first-hand account of life before and after the Iron Curtain was present and it helps to understand the local way of living, you do not only see the city from a tourist’s viewpoint.

The walk starts with a historical summary and then our local guides and the undercover stories reveal interesting facts about traveling, housing, education, media, propaganda, sport, healthcare, religion, and economy under Communism and they compare this with the post-Communist era as well.

The tour provides a clear picture of what everybody over 30 years lived through and how it affects the current attitudes of locals. Not a lot of time has passed since Communism ended in Hungary, only one generation has grown up since the regime change which happened in 1989 peacefully and it takes a lot more time to change the thinking and attitude of people.

Major sights we are passing by:

  • Liberty Square with Cold War Memorials
  • Hungarian Parliament
  • 1956 exhibition lounge
  • Secret Bunker
  • St. Stephen's Basilica
  • and much more.


Joining our tour has loads of benefits. These stories are 100% ours. At the end of our tours, we do not run away.  You have plenty of time to ask questions and make the most out of your travel experience!
