Golden Age Budapest
The glittering years of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy
The majority of Budapest’s most spectacular buildings were designed during the flourishing period of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy. The city became an important hub of the Monarchy, with buildings to match.
Experience this rich and exciting period through its finest buildings.
We start our tour by telling the story of the unification of the three cities, Buda, Pest and Old Buda on the Danube shore while enjoying the unparalleled view to the Chain Bridge and the Buda Castle. We visit Saint Stephen’s Cathedral, one of the most well-known landmarks of the city, then explore the history of downtown Budapest. We visit a market hall, take a peek in some of the most fabulous, closed courtyards of the city then finish our tour in the heart of Budapest, in front of the State Opera House.
