Know More about this tourMeet the group at a central meeting point and start your 3-hour walking tour with an English-speaking guide at the beginning of Pest’s history and discover the Contra-Aquincum, ruins of old Roman fortifications, and the Inner Parish Church, the oldest building in the city.
Continue on in time on a path next to the Danube, which provides fantastic photo opportunities and ample opportunity to admire and understand the architecture and urban development of Pest. As the trail meanders, we have plenty of time for questions and discussion in our small group tour (maximum of 6 participants).
Along the way, you will pass by the Chain Bridge and delve into the development of the Hungarian identity and contemporary politics, exemplified by the re-naming of public space and areas of the city, including the monuments in Freedom Square. Our time together will provide a timeline for the development and changes in Pest, as well as a further understanding of contemporary current events and politics, and the history from which these modern-day issues emerged. We finish our time together at St. Stephen’s Basilica, near the Central European University, a symbol of post-Soviet education and a movement to the future.
