If you like new experiences or if you feel like you need a little extra emotion, go to Budapest. That amazing city, often described as the “Paris of the East”, offers many opportunities to have fun – especially in the summer. You will get a real taste of the Bohemian atmosphere in many places of the city. Since last year, there’s one more reason to visit that elegant capital: a unique exhibition that takes place in the dark.
Yes, you got it right: it’s not a traditional exhibition where you’re expected to stare at art pieces; it is rather an experience that invites you to use all of your senses – but your sight. You will be guided throughout the exhibition by blind leaders. They will take you through natural spaces in the most complete darkness. In order to make the best of your visit, try and join one of the small groups that take off every 15 minutes.
This incredible trip is a way to rediscover the world: at some point you will be able to experience the daily life of a blind person and you will realize that the most basic things, such as ordering coffee in a public place, are hard to achieve. After this experience, no doubt you’ll be able to pick out spices with your eyes shut!
Have you ever seen… a talking clock, a typewriter to write in Braille or household appliances that talk? If you want to check out those fun items, come to Budapest! A lot more awaits you …
This walk in the darkness will lead you to a bar where you may order food and try drinks. Now, if you’re interested in living a blind person’s life for a few hours, here is your chance to do it! Don’t miss out… this fascinating experience will prove you how little use you make of your sense of smell. You’ll see how everything seems different when you can’t look. To relax and eliminate the stress, don’t forget to stop by the dark massage room where you’ll be well-treated.
So what are you waiting for? Come experience new ways of perceiving the world. Get comfy in an apartment in Budapest and go challenge your senses at the Invisible Exhibition.
