Tour Summary : 3-Hour Introduction to the Pest - Escorted Day Tour , priced from $57 per person

Separated by the Danube River, Budapest consists of the former settlements of Buda and Pest. Led by an expert and long-time resident of Budapest, we explore the expansive history of the thriving Pest side of the river on this 3 hour experience. We start at the beginning of Pest’s history and discover the Contra-Aquincum, ruins of old Roman fortifications, and the Inner Parish Church, the oldest building in the city. We then continue on in time on a path next to the Danube, which provides fantastic photo opportunities and ample opportunity to admire and understand the architecture and urban development of Pest. As the trail meanders, we have plenty of time for questions and discussion in our small group tour (maximum of 6 participants). Along the way, we pass by the Chain Bridge and delve into the development of the Hungarian identity and contemporary politics, exemplified by the re-naming of public space and areas of the city, including the monuments in Freedom Square. Our time together will provide a timeline for the development and changes in Pest, as well as a further understanding of contemporary current events and politics, and the history from which these modern-day issues emerged. We finish our time together at St. Stephen’s Basilica, near the Central European University, a symbol of post-Soviet education and a movement to the future.

    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.
