Tour description provided by Viator

A tour entirely dedicated to Hungary's Red Past with story-telling based on vivid memories instead of dusty books. Hammer, sickle, '56 and the trabantful days of Communism.
If you’re the sort of person who wants to know everything about Communism but were always afraid to ask, you will love our Power to the People Tour. This tour will give you an opportunity to go back in time by visiting Budapest's Communism-related sights, retro cafés and thrift shops from up close while you learn about 20th century Hungarian history and Communist pop culture from a native perspective. We always aim to create a familiar atmosphere on our tours so touring the city with us will feel like one of your friends is telling you about the days spent behind the Iron Curtain.Highlights • The Soviet Liberation Monument • Parliament and the ‘Bloody Thursday’ Memorial • The House of Terror (outside only) • The Imre Nagy Memorial • The Statue of Liberty • A retro soda in a Communist-themed bar
