#headsupbudapest: The Pest that Never Was

#headsupbudapest: The Pest that Never Was

Walking tour

Have you ever considered what Budapest could be like in another world? With skyscrapers in the city centre, and a vast palace of culture as the second most iconic building in Pest, next to Parliament? What would it be like to have floating hotels on the Danube, and to have another bridge, named after Andrássy? These are not entirely figments of the imagination: they were seriously considered at one point or another, only to come to naught for some reason.
During our two-hour walk, we make an attempt at reconstructing these ideas, some of them quite surprising, try to imagine what it would be like to attend different museums and theatres, walk along high-rises, and see different monuments. We reveal the motivations behind the plans, and stroll through the imaginary storehouse that holds the scenery of a Budapest that never was.

Meeting point: Vigadó tér, by the fountain
Length of tour: 2–2,5 hours
