Nestled along the Danube River lies Budapest, a city steeped in centuries of forgotten tales, surprising stories, and urban legends. On this walking tour, you‘ll discover downtown Budapest‘s rich history, some fun folklore, and the famous stories that shape the city‘s heritage. Starting at the Statue of Count Gyula Andrássy, you‘ll find out how his exile led to him being known as the Handsome Hanged Hungarian. From there, you‘ll explore the most essential part of the city: the downtown area of Pest, as half the city is known. You‘ll pass several prominent attractions including the Hungarian Parliament Building, St. Stephen‘s Basilica, the Policeman Statue, and the Holocaust Memorial. After circling the Soviet War Memorial, you‘ll stroll down Andrássy Avenue and hear about shopping habits during Hungary’s communist era. You‘ll then pass the Hungarian State Opera and learn about its likeness to its Viennese counterpart before finishing our tour in front of the ornate Budapest Operetta Theatre. Along the way, you‘ll have a chance to: • Find out which prime minister was Empress Elisabeth of Austria’s lover • Discover which embassy the Communists built their secret nuclear shelter beneath • See a miniature Kermit the Frog statue and hear about Mihály Kolodko‘s tiny sculptures littered around the city • Learn why you’ll find statues of George H.
