Treasures of Buda Tour

Budapest: one city, two parts; connected by numerous bridges. Pest is often described as the more vibrant and younger half of the city, whilst Buda is the older and calmer part of the town. Buda is like a “Sleeping Beauty”, not by chance a Unesco World Heritage site.

Overview

Far back in the 13th century Hungary was attacked by the Mongols, from whom people – and the king – sought refuge on the hills of Buda; that’s where the story of the Buda castle starts. Since then, during the centuries it was invaded and occupied by different nations, just like the rest of the country. Ottoman pashas, Hungarian kings and Habsburg emperors, German troops troops were residing in Buda, all leaving here some influence and heritage. So, the cobblestones of the streets of Buda have seen, heard and experienced many things, worth to be discovered. During this 3-hours long walking tour you’ll discover the beauties of the Castle district, coloured by interesting stories and accompanied by breath-taking panoramic views. So put on a pair of comfortable shoes and let us guide you through the exciting past and the mysteries of the Buda castle.

What we offer

.

The capital of Hungary is truly like a treasure chest. A chest of which if you open the lid, you’ll find plenty of beautiful things. You’ll find buildings with stunning architecture, ranging from Roman through Baroque to Art Nouveau; you’ll find spots offering breath-taking panorama; you’ll find signs of another era through the Turkish-style bath-houses, and you’ll find a tangible past through the bullet-holes on buildings witnessing dark and hard times. Budapest is a paradise for explorers; let us help you to experience it in the best way possible!

You are visiting Budapest and would like to visit something also outside of the capital, but don’t really know where to go, what to do and how to get there? We organise trips to places situated just outside of Budapest, reachable within half-an-hour. These are half-day programs, ideal for taking a break from the capital’s busy flow, and experience a bit different reality as well. Browse our programs, and whether you opt for the Baroque castle tour or for another program, we’ll do our best to make it an unforgettable experience.

Budapest occupies less than 1% of Hungary’s territory; meaning that if you don’t leave the capital, you’re experiencing just a tiny part of the country. If you wish to discover the secret world outside the capital’s border, choose our day-trips, and we’ll take you to places and make you live adventures, you’d never come across without the help of a local. Come and immerse yourself in the beauty of the Hungarian countryside, accompanied by a glass of wine!
