About the tour

This virtual walk takes you along almost the entire section of the Pest bank of the river Danube which is listed by the UNESCO as World Cultural heritage.  During this roughly 45 minutes long sightseeing tour Adam will introduce you to the different historical layers of Pest riverfront. From Roman times through WWII to Communism many different layers will be uncovered.  The Danube promenade was the first pedestrian zone in Budapest, dotted with plenty of outdoor cafes designed to enjoy the beauties of Buda from across the river.  As the Chain bridge will go under a multiple year long reconstruction, as long as it is possible, Adam will walk to the middle of the bridge to give you a feel of crossing the bridge. The tour will conclude on the bridge with a breathtaking view to the Buda Castle and to the House of Parliament building.

Informative and very funny tour in a breathtaking city! I really enjoyed it even I’m living in Budapest! Adam showed us some hidden gems of the city which we did not know yet and told us stories which can make our loved city even more interesting for us! Great job!

Joined the tour for the historic reason that the bridge is closing/demo. Interesting to hear some history.

I thoroughly enjoyed walking over the chain bridge one last time while admiring the beautiful evening lights. I visited Budapest two years ago and loved the vibrancy and magnificent architecture.
