1. Budapest: Gödöllő Royal Castle & Pest City Park Private Tour
Head out on the path of Queen Sissy, and stop at Godollo Royal Summer Castle for a private guided tour of the interior. This was the favorite countryside castle of royal family, nobles and aristocrats. Walk along the renovated castle with historic and original furnitures, and learn about the splendor of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy. The palace became the symbol of independent Hungarian statehood, and, as a residential center it had a political significance of it own. It was Empress Elisabeth (1837-1898) who specially loved staying here, and the Hungarian personnel and neighborhood of the Palace always warmly welcomed her. Following her tragic death, a memorial park adjoining the upper garden was built. Visit the newly opened section and exhibition of the castle, the nice castle park and the surroundings. On the way back stop at Budapest City Park and walk the courtyards of Vajdahunyad Castle.
