Budapest Hammer & Sickle Communist Tour with Cafe Stop

Journey through Hungary’s fascinating communist history on this in-depth historical walking tour of Budapest. Over the course of three hours, your expert guide will immerse you in Hungary’s turbulent past filled with victories, failures and struggles, from the rule of Big Brother to the fall of the Iron Curtain and everything in between. Visit the area surrounding the Hungarian Parliament Building and hear stories about WWI, WWII, the Hungarian Revolution of 1956 and the collapse of the Soviet Union as you walk the streets of Budapest and visit a private exhibition hall to see glimpses of daily life and witness the communist propaganda people once lived under.

Go back to the good old times when we drove Trabants, drank spirits at work, lived in block flats, stood in Banana Lines, had two passports, coupon books, no TV on Mondays and no freedom of speech! Experience the build up to 1956 uprising, follow the marches, re-live the battles, hear the stories!
