Take a little break from the busy and crowded streets of Pest and visit more intimate places of Budapest, which can only be described as charming and magical. Get ready to be amazed as you step into wonderful nightly panorama from the top of the hill to the „Pearl of Danube“. Step back in time to the merciless, dark middle ages and hear about the troubles that the Hungarian rulers had to face invading armies and reveal the despicable actions of two mad figures: Vlad Dracula and Elizabeth Báthory.

At the glorious Buda castle where the Hungarian lords used to rule over the kingdom, the lantern will guide you through silent streets and around dark corners that have for centuries been witnesses to evil actions and horrifying bloodshed.

Learn more about ancient Hungary, a time period when the borders between reality and fantasy seemed to be different and all kinds of myths spread over groups of people. Discover one of the darkest periods in Eastern European history.
