Tour Summary : 3-Hour Bell Epoque Budapest - Escorted Day Tour , priced from $57 per person

During the 19th and 20th centuries, the ?golden-age? of Budapest, the capital of Hungary was a center of art and intellectualism. On this 3 hour small group tour with an expert in art or architecture, we explore the stunning architecture from this time period and discuss the politics, economics and culture of the time. At the turn of the 20th century, neo-Renaissance and Art Nouveau buildings emerged to change the landscape of the city. We will begin on Andrassy Street, the hub of economic growth for the city in the 19th century, and continue on to visit the Opera House, Academy of Music, and the Paris Department Store, a famous masterpiece of Art Nouveau. During our time, we will also look at the emergence of the bourgeoisie, and how changing social conditions sparked new ideas and aesthetics for the city as a whole. Since our group is small, we will have plenty of time for questions and discussion. At the end of our time together, we will come away with an understanding not only of the architecture of the Golden Age, but the social and political current that inspired this movement.

    Budapest

    Caught between eastern and western Europe, Budapest has a character uniquely its own. It's also the last cheap, civilised city in Europe. Budapest can seem like one big sight, with each phase in its history, from the Ottoman period until the Communist days and from renaissance to revolution, leaving its mark on the city. For the tourist, a trip to Hungary's capital is dominated by the majestic sights of Buda. In the summer, there are open-air festivals at Szeged, Diosgyor Castle in Miskolc, Gyor and Pecs. Visit the former Royal Palace complex, the Matyas templom and the Belvaros. Margaret Island is a giant recreational park and feels pleasantly separated from the city bustle. Hungarian National Gallery houses Hungarian art since the birth of the nation. Although Esztergom is Hungary's most sacred city, home of the Archbishop and the nation's biggest church, it has a real-life edge. The first-time visitor to Szeged is invariably struck by its space and grandeur. One's immediate impressions of Hungary's third largest provincial city are of greenery and plazas, of broad.
