We will meet by the Hungarian State Opera where we will 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 of all, we will visit the State Opera house on the Andrássy avenue which is considered to be the Paris of the East, with its magnificent buildings and architectural masterpieces.
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 visiting Budapest’s biggest catholic church, we head out to the Academy of Sciences, to the Széchenyi square to check out the panorama of the Buda side and also to talk about the greatest Hungarian: Széchenyi, what the Széchenyi thermal bath was named after.
From here our tour continues to the castle area, to check out the cobble stone covered medieval castle village, and the Buda Castle itself.
