Overview

Experience Hungary’s era under communism through firsthand stories told by experienced Hungarian guides who lived through the days when Budapest was under direct Kremlin control. From everyday tales of difficulty with procuring bananas to extraordinary descriptions of communist party parades, learn about the real experiences of Hungarians during these surreal times with this 2-hour talk and tour.

Participants meet their guide at Buda’s Bambi Presszó café – considered by many as the last city stronghold of communist catering culture – and are encouraged to ask questions about life under the communist regime.

Following the introductory session, the tour provides a first-hand picture of how the communist system worked for normal people living in Budapest, including what life was like then and how the collapse of communism left an imprint on Hungarians and Budapest, much of which is still visible even today.

Along with learning about the local experience and witnessing the traces of communism left in several Budapest sightseeing destinations, participants will gain a deeper understanding about life throughout the Eastern Bloc.
