About the guru Paseando Por Europa

We are a young team that left Spain in 2009 and we are in London to create this beautiful project. At the request of our "walkers" we grew up in Paris, Dublin, Berlin, Malaga, Cordoba and Budapest, teaching these cities to thousands of Spanish speakers. We are professional guides and we are madly in love with every corner of the cities we teach.

About the tour

In this guided tour with a guide in Spanish we will make an exciting trip to the Soviet past of the Hungarian capital, from the birth of the communist movement in 1918 until its fall. We will know how the regime was installed in the political system, education, culture, religion and even in the daily life of the Hungarians. We will learn who Carlos IV or Istán Tisza were and what they have to do with the so-called Chrysanthemum Revolution, a turning point in the history of Hungary. We will also know why at this time it is known as “red terror” or what is the Ugrofinesa theory, while we stroll through emblematic places such as the National Museum, the Interior City Theater, the old radio building or the Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. We will end the tour by visiting Corvin köz, the most symbolic place of the 1956 revolution. During World War II, this city was one of the most potent places of communism in Europe. Enjoy history in its purest form with our Free Communist Budapest Tour.
