Delve into Budapest's golden age—when the city flourished as a center of art and learning—on this comprehensive walking tour. Explore the capital, pass by monuments, examine Neo-Renaissance and Art Nouveau buildings, and hear about the unification of Buda and Pest from an expert guide.

Learn about La Belle Époque, French for “charming era,” commonly known as a period of optimism and peace throughout Europe. During this time, Budapest opened its doors to intellectuals and artists from all corners of the continent. Your guide explains the importance of this period, as it resulted in urban expression and was influenced by other European capitals—including Paris, Vienna, and London.

Stroll along the city's avenues and visit some of the most iconic buildings, including the Opera House, Academy of Music, and Paris Department Store—an Art Nouveau masterpiece famous for its richly decorated café. Examine the vibrant blend of Neo-Renaissance and Art Nouveau buildings that date back to the 1890s and 1900s, while your guide tells you about the history behind each façade.

Continue through the Hungarian streets as you learn more about the unification of Buda and Pest in 1873 and about how the city became the center of a then economically booming Carpathian Basin.
