Spend 2-hours exploring the exterior of the Buda castle district by night and listen to gruesome historical facts and the bloody side of the Hungarian history in the XV-XVII century, and learn the myths of Vlad Dracula and Elizabeth Báthory, once your Storyteller will reveal the despicable actions of these two mad figures, all along with vampire stories of the 19° century. Note that Mysterium Tours does NOT craft typical guided tours for tourists, these are immersive storytelling experiences about legends, histories and tales not always associated with the building we stand in front of.

Enjoyable, great guide, good stories. Brisk two-hour nighttime walk through the castle area. Stunning view of the city. Not suitable for children.
