A historical walk full of the dark tales and beguiling secrets of Budapest’s Castle District. Romance, espionage and the never-ending struggle for power.
This excursion will introduce you to the oldest part of Budapest – the Castle District. Bear with us and learn about kings of yore and invasions that Hungarians had to withstand over the centuries! The medieval ruins and the charming baroque houses in this area will take you back in time and give you a deeper understanding of Hungarian history. Looking out from the most spectacular viewpoints, your tour guide will explain why Buda and Pest are so different and what they have to offer to the weary traveller. (Don’t be surprised if you hear a biased opinion though – there’s still a strong rivalry between the two sides..)
Although the Castle District is one of the most popular tourist hotspots in Budapest, we will make sure to keep you off the beaten track wherever we can so you can explore the hidden local gems as well that are so often overlooked by the crowds.
