Our walk follows in the footsteps of Elisabeth, Empress of Austrian and Queen of Hungary: we conjure up her image in the Sisi room, take the stairs in the stairwell named after her, see her favourite gardens in Buda, the Neo-Renaissance-style Castle Garden Bazaar designed by Miklós Ybl, and we walk around the Royal Palace while we recall the most important Buda-related moments in the life of the queen, much beloved by Hungarians, tragic and happy events. We talk about how the freedom-seeking Elisabeth and the liberty-loving Hungarian nation came to understand each other. We also find out who the queen’s supporters and closest confidantes were, and examine the relationship she maintained with Count Gyula Andrássy.
