Overview of Your Tour

You’ll take in the architecture of Budapest’s enormous neo-gothic Parliament, while stories of its creation attest to the city’s rise. You’ll learn the history behind the tragedies of the Nazi occupation and massacre of Budapest’s Jewish community at the haunting Shoes on the Danube Memorial, as well as the events of the 1956 Revolution (also known as the Hungarian Uprising and the first war to be televized globally). You will also find out why Elvis Presley is the conflict’s unsung hero.

You’ll continue along the banks of the mighty Danube and see the iconic Chain Bridge, Buda Castle across the river and the elegant Buda Hills in the distance. Explore Liberty Square and the U.S. Embassy, the Soviet Memorial and the Ronald Reagan statue, as regimes and the influences crucial to Budapest’s complicated history intertwine-and your guide answers all of your questions about Hungary’s multifaceted capital city.
