It is recommended to explore Budapest by foot and use public transport as it is the most convenient way to discover the city. Budapest, often referred to as the 'Little Paris of Middle Europe,' is known for its rich cultural heritage, historical landmarks, beautiful buildings and churches. The city's form and style were influenced by the Ottoman Empire and later the union with Austria. Your professional guide will answer all your questions about everyday life in Budapest and its turbulent history. After this tour, you'll know Budapest's public transportation and all the must-visit places, best restaurants, and museums.
