Our 2017 tours

THE WORLD OF MIKLÓS BÁNFFY: October 2017
Unfortunately we have had to take the decision to cancel this tour as recent changes to flight schedules have made travel from Budapest into Transylvania unreliable. We hope, in the future, that we will be able to reinstate this tour
Miklós Bánffy (1873-1950) should have been acclaimed as an international statesman, artist, writer, publisher and enlightened landowner. He was, however, a Transylvanian Hungarian and an aristocrat, therefore a double enemy of the State in post-war, Communist Hungary and Romania. His great trilogy, The Writing on the Wall, tells of life in Transylvania from 1904-1914. From Budapest to the heart of Transylvania, we will visit the people and places that informed his writing.
