Written and raved about in the NY Times, Wall Street Journal and other major newspapers, this tour takes you on a journey back to the times about how life was like in Hungary during the 50 years of communism.
You will hear a summary of how it all started, how big brother was the one telling what to do and what not to do. You’ll learn about how life was like behind the iron curtain. How children were brought up, how families lived, how and where people traveled, how long it took to get a passport and many other interesting experiences from black markets to banana lines.
One of the highlighted themes of the tour is the 1956 revolution and the number of events that led to it, such as the War of Independence, Great Compromise, WWI and WWII, that gave huge significance to the meaning behind the Hungarian quest for freedom. Some of the stops during the tour will be about the Liberty Square and the Parliament area.
Also included on the tour is a visit to a private exhibition room, where you will be introduced to the real features of a Hungarian home through relics to typical furniture and furnishings. Furthermore we have an extensive collection of many communist related artifacts and 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 once surrounding the Hungarians.
