In 2002, it decided to construct the building of the Center in Pava Street, outside of the traditional Jewish quarter, further emphasizing its national character.The Holocaust Memorial Center is one of the few institutions in the world, established by the state, that focuses entirely on Holocaust research and education.The visitors are welcomed into a unique space that was named as the most impressive in Budapest, beside the city's panorama itself by Frank Owen Gehry, one of the leading architects in our time.

Have blind faith! Imagine that all the lights go out! If you join us, you will also be able to understand what life is like without one of the senses that provides us with the most information, to live without your sight. At this exhibition you will be accompanied by blind or partially sighted people on a journey that will change your life. Interesting? Strange? Alien? Or ... perhaps natural? Could an hour of blindness open your eyes? At The Invisible Exhibition, the participants obtain information exclusively through touch, hearing, smell and their sense of balance. This way, in the new situation caused by the loss of sight and despite the difficulties, they can experience that the world can be still beautiful without this key sense. The exhibition aims to bring the world of those with and without sight closer and teaches through positive experiences how we can help and in what ways we can understand them. The invisible journey takes place in the company of a blind guide in sites that are specially furnished, faithful to life and are completely dark. Participation is in groups starting every 15 minutes. « less

Once you have got to know the city you will see that it's an obvious, yet a mostly unspoiled treasure, a true treat and refreshment among other European capitals more "in demand". A foreign friend of mine can hardly believe how underrated this city still is, so she has become an ardent "advertiser" of the Budapest overseas.As for the personalized walks offered to my visitors; I've been guiding people for more than a decade and rather than leading large-scale (or bus) tours, I have developed a more authentic and highly personalized approach to sightseeing. Even some of the walks touching upon well-known sights or "Unesco World Heritage Sites", may eventually venture into areas that are more off-the-beaten path just to give you a chance to glimpse behind the touristic scene. The walks are thus tailored to your interests and needs which are discussed in detail before your arrival via e-mail. During the walks you can have a chance to gain insight into everyday life, the arts, architecture, cuisine and history of Budapest or any aspect of the city you may be interested. You will be able to explore the most authentic aspects of Budapest, as if shown around by a local friend.Besides English, guiding is available in Italian, Spanish and French.Welcome to Budapest and have an enjoyable stay. « less
