Is there something in Budapest that seldom makes it onto top-10 lists of must visit sites but still is worth a visit. Indeed there is. For example Fiumei graveyard. Sounds somewhat gloomy or maybe even scary, but in fact it is more of a park, scattered with beautiful gravestones and providing a valuable insight into Hungarian history of the latter two centuries.

What is there for us to see and do?
We’ll see a hearse for the state funerals, huge and ornate beyond imagination, the second largest in the world;
We’ll talk that you may honour a national hero and have revenge on him in the similar manner;
Who has taught all of us to wash our hands (and his postmortem travels).
We will talk about some XIX century poetry and modern politics,
And last but not the least we will have a chance to see the most wild and romantic part of the cemetery before it is renovated.

Nine years ago I came to Hungary and stayed here. I got here by chance, I stayed for love.

I've been taking tours for a few years now, officially with a licence for the last two. I'm a historian by training, so I mostly focus on historical moments, both old and modern. But of course I can also talk about everyday life, culture and anything else you might want to ask about. I keep learning and searching for new information to continually improve my tours.

While getting my licence, I tried different formats and realised that a walking tour is the ideal format for the city: it gives us time to get to know the city at a comfortable pace and discuss everything we've seen. In the end, you get the whole impression of the city. It's also much easier to take pictures and selfies in this format.
