"You can count on Rick Steves to tell you what you really need to know when traveling in Budapest. Following in this book's self-guided walks, you'll explore Europe's most underrated city. Soak with Hungarians in 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-19th-century Golden Age: the Parliament, Opera House, Great Synagogue, and Heroes' Square. View larger-than-life relics of the bygone communist era at Memento Park. 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 colorfully 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 learn which sights are worth your time and money and how to get around like a local. More than just reviews and directions, a Rick Steves guidebook is a tour guide in your pocket, "--back cover.
