See medieval ruins and baroque and Gothic buildings, and admire the National Széchényi Library and Royal Palace as you chart the golden age following the court’s arrival.

Hear about the Ottoman and Habsburg eras, and how Buda attracted a melting pot of nationalities, including a significant Jewish population. View the old street and synagogue site that were hubs of the Jewish community, and see hidden gardens, courtyards, palaces, and statues that speak of Buda’s past yet are often missed by visitors.

Break for a coffee, and view the interior and multi-colored tiled roof of Matthias Church, the coronation site of many Hungarian kings. Visit a WWII bunker and hear about the Siege of Budapest, when Russian and German forces fought in the streets here in 1945, causing huge devastation.

After three hours, your tour finishes in central Buda.
