About the tour

This is the third visit of the TSS to Hungary, the first being in 1975 and the second in 1993. Much has changed in the intervening years. Budapest has a long and turbulent history and has been fought over and virtually destroyed on a number of occasions. Now beautifully restored, its rich history is evident wherever you go. Situated on either side of the Danube, Buda on the west bank is distinguished by the magnificent Castle and Gellert Hills, whilst the rich neo-Gothic Parliament Building whose design is based on the Houses of Parliament in London dominates the eastern or Pest bank.
