Budapest was literally built on water: there is a uniquely rich network of streams, mineral and medicinal waters under the city which nourish the numerous thermal baths, spas and swimming pools that Budapest is justly famed for. The Danube, which flows through the city like an artery, is not only a beautiful sight, but supplies Budapest with one of the best and tastiest drinking waters in Europe.
On our 1.5-hour tour, we talk about the history of the city, how it developed, how the Danube determined and how floods changed the city. We see a fabulous domed Turkish bath and a beautiful old waterworks. We even taste several kinds of local mineral water.
The thematic walking tour takes place in the framework of Ars Sacra Festival.
