Overview

You can count on Rick Steves to tell you what you really need to know when traveling in Budapest.

In this guide, you'll find a thorough exploration of Europe's most underrated city. Soak with Hungarians in a thermal bath, sample paprika at the Great Market Hall, and take a romantic twilight cruise on the Danube. Wander through the opulence of Budapest's late-19-century Golden Age: the Parliament, Opera House, Great Synagogue, and Heroes' Square. For a break from the big city, head into the countryside—to Habsburg palaces, Hungarian folk villages, the historic wine-making capital of Eger, and colorully tiled Pécs.

Rick’s candid, humorous advice will guide you to good-value hotels and restaurants. He’ll help you plan where to go and what to see, depending on the length of your trip. You’ll get up-to-date recommendations about what is worth your time and money. More than just reviews and directions, a Rick Steves guidebook is a tour guide in your pocket.
