About The Gödöllő & Lázár Equestrian Park Tour:
Admire the grandeur of Habsburg-era Hungary and experience its ancient equestrian heritage on this wonderful half-day tour. After being picked up from your Budapest hotel you'll travel to the beautiful baroque palace of Gödöllő, former residence of Queen Elisabeth 'Sisi'. Tour the palace interior and gardens while listening to facts and stories from your English-speaking tour guide.
Next is the ranch of coach driving world champions Vilmos and Zoltán Lázár, better known as the Lázár Brothers. Their equestrian park is located within a verdant nature reserve close to the Gödöllő Hills. As a welcome greeting you'll be offered a piece of homemade pogácsa (oven baked break) and a shot of pálinka (Hungarian brandy).
Watch an incredible horsemanship display by the 'csikós', Hungary's traditional mounted herdsman. After the show you'll be free to take a look around the Hall of World Champions, and the mini zoo with its collection of native farm animals, such as Hungarian Grey cattle, Racka sheep and wooly Mangalica pigs. Before returning to Budapest all tours end with a leisurely horse and carriage ride.
