Overview

Updated with new information on restaurants, bars, and hotels, this visual travel guide reveals the tumultuous history, local legends, and colorful character of Budapest with vivid images and detailed text. From the stern-faced symbols of Communism to the Renaissance splendors of a vanished world, travelers are guided with lively detail to such city treasures as Budapest's coffeehouses and their resident poets, the steamy Turkish baths, and the old haunts of the pashas. Rich historical details reveal what the Hapsburg emperor said about Europe’s most beautiful opera house, why the Hungarians eat paprika, and who bowed to the ground in thanks when he first saw Buddha. Eight guided walks highlight the city’s ancient history, grandiose architecture, vibrant culture, savory restaurants, and local traditions.
