Budapest: 3-Hour Trabant Sightseeing Tour

2. Budapest: 3-Hour Trabant Sightseeing Tour

Tour Budapest’s communist-era monuments behind the wheel of an original Trabant! There’s no better way to get into the nostalgia of Budapest’s past than with in an original Trabant 601. More than 3 million Trabants, or paper Jaguars as they’re affectionately known, were manufactured during the time the vehicle was in production. This is the car that features a 2-stroke engine and is said to be made of paper and plastic. Its 26-horsepower engine will take you from 0-60 kilometers per hour in 21 seconds! To drive a Trabant you need to start by checking the fuel dip-stick to ensure that the tank isn’t empty, and then open the fuel tap. After pushing down the clutch pedal, you shift to first gear, and then you’re off. It’s recommended that you visit the Communist Statue Park, the Ecseri flea market, and the typical prefabricated blocks of flats built in the 1970s and 1980s. Alternatively, you can take a more normal tour of the major city attractions. If you’d like to continue your Trabant adventure, you can also book your airport transfer with a Trabant! Please note that in order to drive the Trabant a valid driving license is required.

Budapest: Memento Park Ticket

3. Budapest: Memento Park Ticket

Discover gigantic monuments of the communist dictatorship and learn the history of this era in Hungary. At the end of the communist era, all statutes were removed from the streets of Budapest and set up in this park as a reminder of the era. Memento Park portrays the fall of communism in a unique way. On arrival, you will see Stalin's enormous grandstand, a replica of the one that used to stand in the former Parade square where Socialist holidays were celebrated by the leaders of the party and the state. You can also learn about the historical background by exploring the photo exhibition and watching the documentary titled "The Life of an Agent." The park isn't all serious either. You can always pose for a selfie with the statue of Lenin or some Soviet Red Army soldiers.
