      Step back in time to Budapest's "Golden Age," which was a period of time that defines the city's evolution between the 19th and 20th centuries. An architect or historian will lead the way and teach you why Budapest is considered a World Heritage Site. A protected center of culture, Hungary's capital is a patchwork scene, made up of historic Hungarian Art Nouveau architecture. Take a moment to admire the Art Nouveau and neo-Renaissance buildings that sprung up when the urban setting was going through a major transformation.

      Plenty of time will be spent on Andrassy Street - a boulevard that dates back to 1872. Named after Hungary's former Prime Minister Count Gyula Andrássy, Andrassy Street connects Erzsébet Square with the Városliget. Discover the role this area played in Budapest's rise to prominence. Starting off as an ordinary, somewhat timid city, Budapest grew into a thriving financial hub following a string of geopolitical events that paved the way for Hungary's economic growth.

      A visit to the Academy of Music is included in this tour. Founded on November 14, 1875, by Franz Liszt, the important institution helped many talented Hungarians to pursue a career in music. The concert hall is a symbol of Hungary's musical past and present. Equally as mesmerizing is the Opera House and beautifully decorated Paris Department Store. Conclude the experience by admiring middle-class houses, public buildings, and Medieval and Baroque architecture in the Budapest Palace District.
