On this tour we fly back in time on Buda side to explore the secret stories of the cobblestoned Castle District. We delve deeper among the historical walls to discover unseen gems and urban legends of the lovely narrow streets. While we visit the breathtaking sights of the Castle District such as Matthias Church, the fairy tale Fisherman’s Bastion, the Royal Palace and the beautiful Royal Garden, we will focus on the inner treasures, the wonders felt into oblivion and centuries-old secrets.

We exlpore the hidden world under the surface, detect urban legends and mysterious stories of the colourful dwelling houses. We will see how the locals live on that part of the city in beautiful dwelling houses with secret courtyards. We will discover the unseen legends of the local streets spiced with local Hungarian food and pálinka (the spirit of the Hungarians). Come and walk with me along the cobblestoned streets, get lost in the charming Castle District off the beaten tourist track and as a non plus ultra: try real Hungarian food during the tour.
