Your Own Budapest.
Buda: Unexpected Treasures of the City

Buda Sightseeing Tour: Unveiling the Charms of the City
Have you ever encountered a nation that has chosen a cake as its symbol instead of a king, commander, or scientist? A country that thrived on 'goulash socialism' and proudly bore the title of 'the happiest barrack in the socialist camp?' And the capital city that boasts of a colossal monument dedicated to Vacation? The Hungarian language itself is a testament to their uniqueness! Welcome to the most peculiar country in Europe. And old Buda, the right-bank section of the Hungarian capital, is the epitome of this eccentricity that has stood out for a millennium. But that's only the tip of the iceberg.

Buda is a "thing in itself." It has stories to tell - if it wants to - even if it involves events that span centuries of the country's history. Every little detail carries two if not three, meanings - one for curious tourists and another for locals. So come with us as we search for those little details, unravel their significance, be surprised, and get to know Buda not just as a tourist but as an insider.

Stunning architecture, stained-glass windows, mosaic ornaments, colorful tiles, Austro-Hungarian-style mailboxes, old-fashioned trams, wrought-iron fences, delightful pastry shops, and charming street sculptures by the riverfront - Buda has it all in abundance. It's a photographer's dream come true! And, let's not forget that Budapest is the city of hedonists, so we'll indulge in a variety of scrumptious delights. Join us for an unforgettable experience!

Our itinerary will take us through the ancient streets of Buda, tracing the same paths as the medieval inhabitants. We'll witness the intricately designed late-Gothic Matthias Church and the formidable tower of the old Mary Magdalene church, the Buda Castle, and the presidential residence, the Shandor Palace. From the gallery of the Fisherman's Bastion, we'll take in the breathtaking views of the Pest. We'll take a ride on the old funicular, stroll along the promenade, and peek into a traditional pastry shop to discover the abundance of Hungarian sweets. We'll uncover the secrets of the medieval city's labyrinth and the House of Houdini, the greatest trickster of the last century. Did you know he was born in Budapest?

And all this time, we will tell you about things serious and not so. We'll reveal how people have lived here since ancient times, how they celebrate their holidays, how they resolve conflicts with their neighbors, what they eat and drink, and who the "man of Buda" is. But in Budapest, you'll find answers to more profound questions too. What is the city hiding, and why? How can one conduct a revolution without bloodshed? What is Hungarian loneliness? And why does it not prevent Budapest from being a city of fun and hedonism?

We'll take you off the beaten tourist path, explore hidden gems and secrets, and even find the tiniest residents of the city, each with their unique and surprising story. We'll taste the most delectable strudel in the world, search for bronze autographs on ancient pavements, admire multi-colored tiled rooftops from above, decipher the purpose of cunning architectural details and invent an unusual transportation route to Mount Janos. And on this tour, we've curated the best places to capture stunning photographs. So, have you started packing your bags yet?
Perhaps, you still have some questions. This is what we get asked about most of the time.
