Art Deco and Bauhaus: an Adventure in Budapest
Breathspiration takes you on a six day immersion in Budapest, to learn about the history, culture and architecture of this wonderful city. You can expect days filled with guided walking tours discovering hidden secrets, gastronomic adventures, Hungarian wines and relaxing spa visits to end your day, the way locals do.
The journey’s concept is to guide you through the daily life of Budapest, blending contemporary and history. You will connect with the city at different layers: walking its streets, visiting historic buildings and private homes, enjoying its gastronomy and nightlife, and visiting one of the numerous spas the city has to offer.
Budapest is still somewhat under the radar of many travelers, therefore it still has a lot of authenticity and old Europe style. The city has been through a lot in history: different cultures, leaders and political systems have all left their mark, and helped to co-create what Budapest is today.
If you are an art, architecture or design lover, a foodie, a wellbeing enthusiast or just someone looking for a unique and mindful travel experience, do not hesitate to join us!

You will stay in an eclectic palace built by the Hungarian Freemasons in the 19th century, turned into a 5* hotel recently. As the life of the Freemasons was full of mystery, so is the hotel: shrouded with legends and secrets. Sometimes you will feel that you are in an ancient mansion and sometimes in a luxurious palace. The elevator is covered with large, heavy velvet curtains, which open magically. Walking under the arches, the blinking candle carries the secrets of the past centuries.
