Budapest Half-Day Tour: Life Behind the Iron Curtain

2. Budapest Half-Day Tour: Life Behind the Iron Curtain

Take a private full-day tour of sites in Budapest that memorialize Hungary’s time behind the Iron Curtain, and learn about life during that era. Visit the Citadella to learn about the siege of Budapest toward the end of World War II, which was the beginning of the story of the country’s occupation. Admire the Liberty Statue, or Freedom Statue, the huge monument erected in 1947 on Gellert Hill. The Liberty Statue was originally dedicated to the Russian troops, and with a pedestal 26 meters high and the statue another 14 meters it is probably the tallest of its kind in Europe. It’s now considered a universal symbol of freedom and is an important feature in the city’s panorama. You’ll also visit the Terror House, a museum dedicated to those who fell victim during the Communist era (audio-guide included). Other monuments that your guide will show you include statues of famous personalities of the era, including Marx, Lenin, and Ostapenko. The Memorial of the Hungarian-Soviet Friendship, and many others erected from 1945-1989, were relocated from the city to the open-air museum of Memento Park. The collection of 42 pieces includes the 6-meter-high statue of the Liberation Army Soldier as well. Finish the tour with a more joyful memory of the era with a ride on the Children’s Railway in the Buda hills. Originally known as the Pioneer’s Railway, it opened in 1949, operated by children aged 10-14 years.

Budapest: 3-Hour Trabant Sightseeing Tour

3. Budapest: 3-Hour Trabant Sightseeing Tour

Tour Budapest’s communist-era monuments behind the wheel of an original Trabant! There’s no better way to get into the nostalgia of Budapest’s past than with in an original Trabant 601. More than 3 million Trabants, or paper Jaguars as they’re affectionately known, were manufactured during the time the vehicle was in production. This is the car that features a 2-stroke engine and is said to be made of paper and plastic. Its 26-horsepower engine will take you from 0-60 kilometers per hour in 21 seconds! To drive a Trabant you need to start by checking the fuel dip-stick to ensure that the tank isn’t empty, and then open the fuel tap. After pushing down the clutch pedal, you shift to first gear, and then you’re off. It’s recommended that you visit the Communist Statue Park, the Ecseri flea market, and the typical prefabricated blocks of flats built in the 1970s and 1980s. Alternatively, you can take a more normal tour of the major city attractions. If you’d like to continue your Trabant adventure, you can also book your airport transfer with a Trabant! Please note that in order to drive the Trabant a valid driving license is required.

The card is really very useful, you have access to all public transport and main attractions for free (some attractions are not totally free but they apply a big discount if you have this card) I recommend giving it to anyone visiting the city.

If you like to visit museums, that's fine, since there are quite a few to do in Budapest, and public transport is plentiful and well provided. We had the 72h and there is the 72h plus which allows additional.

Super handy card. Can be activated immediately at the airport. We have used it for public transport, museums & the spa. Would buy it again, if any, next time. Haven't looked yet.

guaranteed savings, helped to save time by not having to buy tickets for each single means of transport ....

Amazing really worth the money if you use it for free transport and the other perks
