What to expect?

In the company of a historian, take in the masterpieces of Hungarian architecture from the golden age of 19th and early 20th century café house culture as well as poets, artists and writers who created the most remarkable pieces of Hungarian literature.

To have the experience of sitting in one of the cafe houses in Budapest and sipping your coffee with a lovely cake or pogácsa is a journey back in the heroic age, when Budapest was a flourishing, vivid and thriving city of Europe, full of life, ambition and excitement.

 

This tour is dedicated to the masterpieces of Hungarian architecture as well as poets, artists and writers who created the most remarkable pieces of Hungarian literature.

 

Our 3 hour walk starts at Vorosmarthy square, in the heart of the city. The first cafe The Gerbaud gives us a deeper insight into the ambiance of Imperial Budapest with its exquisite interior, and more than 100 years of history, served as a central social hub for both tourists and locals during the late 19th century. From Gerbaud we take the tram by the Danube to the Central Cafe, a space so dignified that it epitomizes what the cafe house culture really meant during the 19th century pinnacle of the Habsburg Empire’s economic and cultural power. Next we move the Museum Café and after yet another short walk, we come to the Urania Cafe on Rakoczi street, which houses the oldest Film Theatre in the city. From here we will walk towards Blaha Lujza tér, on the big boulevard to reach our next sight, the elegant New York Cafe, one of the most beautiful Cafe Houses in the world to finally, hoping to catch a glimpse of the city’s celebrity actors and actresses, we will end our walking tour sitting down for a coffee and cake in the Muvesz Cafe on Andrassy Boulevard
