After the World War II Hungary became a communist country and this period lasted till 1989.
With this tour I would like to show you what life was like during the almost 50 years of communism.
If you are done with the basic city tour or/and you are interested in this period come to this tour and I will tell you how it all started, I will also talk about the 1956 uprising and the period after.
Learn details how children were brought up, what families lived like, how and where they could travel, how long it took to get a passport and many other interesting facts from black markets to banana lines.
I was just a small girl when we changed the system but I know a lot about this period through my family, readings and of course I learned a lot about it.
Let me share all these things with you!
We visit the Memento Park, we explore some of the sights of the 1956 revolution in downtown Pest (Liberty Square, Kossuth square, etc. ) and in the end of the tour we visit the Terror Museum which once functioned as a head quarter of the secret police.
We finish the tour here but you will have a possibility to stay longer if you feel like.
The Terror museum is closed on Monday!!!
If you only have time on Monday we can still make the tour but it will be a bit different.
Feel free to ask about it!

A Recent Review of this tour

This tour consists of two venues: Memorial Park and the Terrorist Museum. Memorial Park is a short distance out of Budapest and is truly unlike anything I had ever seen before. Apparently after the Communists left Budapest there were a whole lot of statues from all around the area that depicted the dictators and their way of life. Instead of destroying them, the Hungarians gathered them into this "Park". Orsolya was very knowledgeable about these years of Hungarian history. Highly recommended.
