Description

Learn the history of the city dwellers, the country's culture, tradition and more. We go a long way back From the celtic times through history of the region. Then we will learn about Attila the Hun and his real relation to the modern day Hungarians and the Roman empire and the settlements of Pannonia. Study the 150 years of Ottoman rule/occupation, the struggle to be free and the historical marks it left on the city, the country, the people and the language.

Hear all about the struggle to flourish under the Habsburg empire leading to the great compromise, and then into WWI and the loss of two-thirds of Hungary's territory after the Treaty of Trianon. Understand why Hungary entered WWII with the Nazis, and the effect the WWII battles and sieges had on Budapest.

At the end of the tour we will teach you all about the rise of communism and the Stalinist rule which bled the country of new property and freedoms. The short lived freedom fighting and 1956 revolution, the marches, protests and then the great battles with men versus Soviet tanks fought in the famous street battles. We will go to our own private exhibition room afterwards and you will be introduced to the real features of a Hungarian home through relics to typical furniture and furnishings.

See an extensive collection of many communist related relics, such as red and blue passports, party member's registration book, pins, medals, currency and huge placards to help your understanding of the propaganda we once lived under.

The tour concludes as you learn about the big brother's political changes at Perestroika leading to Hungary eventually running free elections and the change of an era into capitalism and what is today's modern Hungary.
