Communist Budapest Walking Tour

This thematic tour is recommended for those who are interested in the second part of 20th-century history.

Hungary was maybe the most special part of the Eastern block at the time. Between the true "red" countries and the still free Austria, we were called the happiest barrack.

How could this country have a Communist/Socialist regime and Coca Cola at the same time?

If you want to get acquainted with personal stories about history, religion, holidays, school, shopping, media, housing, and everyday life, come for an easy walk in the Pest downtown. You will be strolling in an elegant area with lots of hidden memories to be discovered!

Explore downtown traces of Hungarian Communism with your local tourist guide!

    Stop At: Budapest, District V., Hungary

    Your vague feeling - that Hungary is a post-communist country - will be explained, illustrated and elaborated. Historical background to sites will be added, with a nice balance between information and fun facts.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Szabadsag Ter, Budapest 1054 Hungary

    The highlight of the tour is the soviet memorial at Szabadság Square. Let's figure out why it is still there. Everyday life, such as traveling, is also an important topic to discuss in front of related buildings. And all of this will take place in a dominantly elegant, government area administrative center.

    Duration: 45 minutes

    Stop At: Hungarian Parliament Building, Kossuth Ter 1-3, Budapest 1055 Hungary

    Hungary's anti-communist revolution of 1956 is also featured at Kossuth Square right in front of the Hungarian Parliament Building with reference to our infamously crushed uprising. Our last stop will be at the old headquarters of the secret service, where we’ll discuss their methods and significance in the system, and of course, I will tell the most interesting spy stories of the era.
