The Hungarian capital has been through a lot in its time and those with an interest in history will find it a fascinating place. Here are some good ways to learn more about Budapest and its past.

History is everywhere you look in the city, from the old imperial palaces of the Austro-Hungarian Empire to Communist-era buildings. It’s amazing to think just 30 years ago Hungarians were still living under Communism, and you can learn about the excesses of the regime at the House of Terror. The museum also tells the story of the fascist government that ruled the country in the early 20th century, and provides a stark warning of the dangers of totalitarianism.

Those keen to learn more about the communist era should also make the trip to Memento Park, some five miles outside the center of the city. Here you will find all of the Communist monuments that were removed from the streets following the fall of the regime.

Prior to that, Hungary was occupied by Nazi Germany during the Second World War. The country played an active role in the Holocaust, and this terrible episode in the history of the country is commemorated at the Holocaust Memorial Center.

Further back in time, the Austro-Hungarian Empire was responsible for the massive palaces still standing today. One of the most famous is Buda Castle, which now houses an art gallery
