FULL TOUR DESCRIPTION:
We meet you at your hotel or anywhere where you would like to meet your guide. We give you a small summary about what we are going to see in Budapest on the walking tour, handing out the public transportation tickets and then the fun begins.
First we visit the City Park, where we get immersed in the Hungarian history at the Heroes’ Square with its so many statues of our heroes from the thousand-year-old history. From here we visit the Vajdahunyad Castle, which is a mishmash of numerous architectural styles and hosting the Agricultural Museum, just right next to the ice skating rink. We will also have the chance to peek in to the largest thermal bath, the Széchenyi thermal bath.
From here taking the millennium metro we head out to the State Opera House to see this architectural perfection and talk a little about the Hungarian music life. Then we will have a look at the St. Stephen’s Basilica, the biggest catholic church of Budapest, which has a really important relic inside, the mummified right fist of our first king Stephen.
After having seen the St. Stephen’s Basilica we go up to the castle area, to have a decent coffee break with the possibility to try some Hungarian pastries, at the edge of the Fisherman’s Bastion. Later we will have a look at the beautiful Matthias Church and the castle village and finishing our tour next to the Buda Castle.
The castle is also called the Royal Palace, and getting down from the castle area we will also show you the endless labyrinth like passage inside the castle hill.
