Experience Description

The Hammer and Sickle Tour takes you on a journey back through time to show you how life was like during 50 years of communism. It is summarized how it all started, how Big Brother told us what to do and what not to do. You will learn about how life was like behind the Iron Curtain. You will find out how children were brought up, how families lived, how they travelled, where they could travel, how long it took to get a passport and many other interesting experiences from black markets to banana lines. Also included on the tour is a visit to a private exhibition room, where you will be introduced to the real features of a Hungarian home through relics, typical furniture and furnishings. Furthermore, you will see an extensive collection of many communist related artefacts and relics, such as red and blue passports, party member’s registration book, pins, medals, currency and huge placards to help your understanding of the propaganda Hungarians once lived under! Throughout the tour, you will be introduced to the historical approach through the last 200 years of contemporary Hungarian history. Hungary’s past is filled with victories, failures and struggles. You are led through these eventful times by showing the sights related to these events and telling you how they shaped Hungary today.
On the tour, Hungarian history is retold through events that “shook” the world – including the 1956 revolution, one of the main highlighted themes of the tour. Prior to the revolution in 1956 a plethora of events such as the War of Independence, the Great Compromise, WWI, and WWII gave huge significance to the meaning behind Hungary’s quest for freedom. After delving into recent history, a microscopic approach is taken towards the newly appointed communist government after World War II who put in place the conditions that led to the events of the 1956 Revolution. The tour leads you through the remembrance of the first protests and marches and the first shootings and killings that led the Hungarians to fight back against an unethical regime – as well as taking you through some of the major areas where all the action happened. Some of the stops and stories will be about the Liberty Square and Cardinal Mindszenty’s part in the revolution as well as the significance of the square and the last remaining tribute to the Soviet Union! At the memorial of Imre Nagy, it will be remembered the man who defied the leaders in Moscow and paid dearly on the gallows two years later. Another stop will be the Parliament area where shots were fired, which instigated the revolt to take up arms and defend one’s freedom.
The 1956 Uprising was a short-lived battle on the streets but afterwards, many Hungarians maintained thoughts of freedom from communism and finally laid to rest the memories through the reburial of Imre Nagy leading to free elections and a return to a free society. The tour ends in the city center.
