This tour is a spicy combination of historical sightseeing, understanding contemporary Budapest, discovering street art and murals, local galleries, bookshops, coffee shops, and the design scene, all along the path of ruin bars.
What to Expect
Imagine Budapest in the early 2000s. Something is going on in the Jewish quarter: bars and cultural centers are opening in partially ruined buildings and courtyards. After a few years they had an official name: ruinpubs. Within ten years, they become an ultimate highlight of Budapest.
Now they are the pulsating heart of Budapest: the gardens of creativity, cultural and civil hubs, the hidden artist caves, a mingle of everything that is loved by the locals and what you will love about Budapest.
Get to know the backstory of this incredibly interesting district with its former inhabitants and why it constituted a perfect location and setting for the flourishing of the Budapest nightlife and alternative arts scene. Visit the legendary ruin pubs and places that most tourists have never even heard of! Get to know the ubiquitous street art here and see the best local designer shops!
This tour is much more than a simple pub crawl – you will also be shown how underground culture and party came together in the downtown of Budapest.
