The addresses of the locations are conscious not listed. The work done by Julius discovering these locations, taking pictures and to keep the information up-to-date, is that big that Julius has decided to keep this information secret to avoid that others make too much profit of his work. Beside of it: several locations are officially forbidden for visitors and the visiting of the dilapidated buildings is not without risk, in fact it can be (very) dangerous in several ways.

Since September 2010 Julius follows the developments of this art form in Budapest and made more and more photographs and discovered also more and more locations. Therefore the subject got too big for the "Szia Budapest" websites and Julius decided to introduce a separate website for this kind of Art. And also because it's an unique form of Art, which often only for a short time can be viewed.
Beside the beautiful Art, is Graffiti also a growing problem in Budapest and no building or a door, monuments or buildings of lesser importance, can escape. Most of this Graffiti is vandalism, with great damage as result. When walking through Budapest and familar with Graffiti you'll see the same tags on numerous locations, because most artists or vandals are to recognize at a style.
A scaffolding against a wall guarantees that artists or vandals try to use it to put Graffiti on a rooftop of a building (see photo). The expression as shown in the picture can be found at numerous places in Budapest. This is the same for other tags. And, when you walk through Budapest, and see a beautiful Art Nouveau door that is daubed with Graffiti, then you wonder how less respect for the art and awareness of the value of door the people do have who destroyed it. Youthful indiscretions or lack of education? A great deal of water must flow through the Danube before the vandalism will stop and in Budapest are plenty of places where Graffiti is not injurious, but rather an enrichment.
This literally and figuratively adventurously tour, brings you to different locations in Budapest such as "The Wall of Fame". And, currently, also to a dilapidated factory complex where many beautiful examples of Graffiti Art can be viewed. The route and which locations will be visted, will be determined just before the tour starts. Julius has knowledge of almost 70 locations, so it will be a random choice. Because the Graffiti Art often change it is always a surprise, also for your guide, what will be found during this private tour!
