Take a walk on the weird side
Budapest photo, historic and cultural tour
🇬🇧in English, 🇫🇷en français, 🇭🇺magyarul
A real delicacy, only for curious minds. This photo walk covers some epic scenes average tourists pass by unconsciously if they pass by at all. Where is the memorial of a famous execution? Is there a real whale in Budapest, indeed? Look down to a hole which used to be the designated spot of the National Theatre exploded on another square that has a fountain today on its place and why the finally upbuilt theatre is the target of mockery among intellectuals? What’s the relation between Ronald Reagan, Peter Falk, Queen Elisabeth of Austria and Puskás, the most famous Hungarian? Have you ever seen a gypsy palace?

Look for the unusual
Zoltán took me to the most unusual photo tour, showing the weirdest buildings of Budapest. (E.g. the extremely kitschy National Theater). I am not an easy client as a university professor, but even my multilayered questions could not corner him: answers there were for all of them. Walking with Zoltán was a sheer joy, as he shared his ample knowlede about the buildings, about the best photo-approach and about the Hungarian society. The photo walk is long but it deserves continuous attention, as there are no redundant elements. Sightseeing, professional training, lifelong learning (and a good meal at the end) all in one pack. Great!
