What to expect

Away from the hustle and bustle of Pest, this tour takes you to the charming, magical and most intimate places of the Buda side of the city. Be amazed by the wonderful nightly panorama from the top of the hill to the “Pearl of Danube“. You’ll go back in time, to a dark and hostile time, between 15th and 17th century when Hungarian rulers faced invading armies and reveal the despicable actions of two mad figures: Vlad Dracula and Elizabeth Báthory.

At Buda castle, the ancient seat of the Hungarian lords, the lantern will guide our way along silent streets and around sinister corners that have for centuries been witnesses to bloodshed and the actions of cruel people. Be prepared to learn about the old Hungary which gave birth to myths that lie between fantasy and chilling truth during one of the darkest periods of the history of Eastern Europe.
