🏰(Hi)Stories of the Buda Castle - interesting stories, history and the most beautiful scenery!
Hi! My name is Sándor, currently a business university student, but a massive enthusiast of history and the city itself. I spent most of my life in Budapest, my birthplace. It is a pleasure for me to guide you around certain locations of the city, highlighting the history behind almost every corner. Even if you are not a fan of history itself, my tours could be interesting for you:) I try to make my tours both interesting and informative simultaneously. I hope my enthusiasm is worthwhile!
