1. Budapest: 1956 Revolution Memorial Private Tour

Discover one of the most significant periods in Hungarian history by learning about the Revolution of 1956. With your guide, explore sites of historical significance and learn about the communist era of Hungary. Historians still argue what to call the events that were triggered by a peaceful solidarity rally of Hungarian students with the Polish people on October 23rd, 1956. It has been described as a rebellion, revolt, uprising, popular uprising, revolution, counter-revolution, or War of Independence. Visit the site of Bloody Thursday in Kossuth Lajos Square, Budapest. Little is known about the exact numbers of revolutionaries who were killed, but it ranges between 22 and 1000 or so people. See the former party headquarters of the Hungarian communist government. Make a stop at the statue of Imre Nagy the Prime Minister of Hungary, and leader of the Revolution, who was executed for treason in 1958 by Soviet forces.

Miklos has an encyclopedic knowledge of the players and events of Hungarian communism. He's a teacher, complete with a handout at the end. This tour is more than a Cliffs Notes version and we learned a lot.
