The Retro Period

Once upon a time there were the 1960s, 70s and 80s. Socialism, “the happiest barrack”, party congresses, politics, the victorious working class and “Stalin Baroque”.  At the same time there was a parallel world – bakelite records, mini skirts, neon advertising, soda-water, the new Bauhaus – in other words, Budapest retro.

This is a real time travel. We show you the city’s retro hot spots and the underground, a product of the “great Soviet Union”, which connects them. You will experience the link between the “best trainers of socialism” and the red star of the pub counter. A world where phone was a luxury products and took decades to get one. Culture: work of arts categoriesd as “accepted, tolerated and forbidden”. The Pest folk were sitting in the “Presszó”- the Café of the time- and were drinking “simple” or “double” coffee… It would be a shame to miss!
