  • Visit one of the few surviving cult bars where little has changed since the 1970s
  • Get to know a well-educated local
Full description
Forget scripted tours and avoiding tough questions. Join a conversation that digs deep into the most contentious political developments in Hungary in the last 30 years, from a controversial "soft" system change from communism to democracy and a free market economy to the recent trends toward the creation of an "illiberal" democracy by the current Hungarian government. Enjoy the ambiance of a traditional cafe unchanged in the last decades where you might be the only foreigner.

Your conversational guides have backgrounds ranging from law to history to international relations and have all been involved in Hungarian public life whether it be politics, volunteering, writing and translating articles, or managing educational programs. Gain an objective account (as much as is possible) of recent events in the country and hear your guides's opinions too.

Join this tour to access deeper knowledge and understanding about Budapest across the board – nothing is taboo. Discussion groups are limited to six guests (contact us if you are a bigger group and would like to participate).
