Want to get a solid overview of Budapest? If so, this tour is perfect for you. In the company of a scholar who knows the ins and outs of city life, you will discover a blend of modern and ancient structures, which will give you an insight into the past and present of Hungary's bustling capital. From its rise under foreign rule to the unique identity it now possesses, there is much to be learned on this 3-hour group tour.
Pest and Buda are two intriguing settlements that stand out on Europe's map. Europe's second-longest river the Danube disconnects Pest from Buda, although the communities combine to create Budapest as we know it today. Primarily, the land was occupied by the ancient Celts and Romans. These Celtic tribes once populated the regions where modern urban planning is most noticeable nowadays. Let your local historian guide you around the settlements and inform you about the origins of each area.
During your time spent wandering around the city, you will come across multifarious landmarks that tell a story of Pest's past. At the start of the 4th Century, the Romans constructed a fortress, known as Contra-Aquincum. Marvel at the ruins and proceed to Inner Parish Church. Notice the Gothic architectural style of the church, which is a stark contrast to the Baroque building techniques and Art Nouveau architecture that can be witnessed near Danube's shoreline. End your experience capturing stunning views whilst strolling along a river trail.
