About Free Budapest Communism Tour

Every Friday and Saturday @ 15:30

Our Communist tour Budapest provides our guests with an interesting first-hand account of life before and after the Iron Curtain was present and it helps to understand the local way of living, you do not only see the city from a tourist’s viewpoint. The walk starts with a historical summary and then our local guides and the undercover stories reveal interesting facts about traveling, housing, religious life, education, media, propaganda, sport, healthcare, religion, economy under Communism and they compare this with the post-Communist era as well. The tour provides a clear picture about what everybody over 30 years lived through and how it affects current attitudes of locals. Not a lot of time has passed since Communism ended in Hungary, only one generation has grown up since the regime change which happened in 1989 peacefully and it takes a lot more time to change the thinking and attitude of people.
