History in Budapest

A student History trip to Budapest will offer your group a really interesting perspective on the subject as it has only been liberated from the regime of Communism relatively recently.

Icons of the Communist legacy are still visible all over Budapest , from the architecture to the beautiful sub-way system. There are also fascinating museums such as the new House of Terror that so lucidly paints the picture of life under the regime.

However, Budapest also offers a great deal more for traditional  History groups, from the ornate architecture of Buda Castle, to the famous Parliament Building, Memento Park and the Hungarian National Museum, all nestled around the picturesque River Danube. Call us today for your next competitive tailor-made trip.
