Budapest is an increasingly-visited short break tourist destination, now served by all the main low-cost airlines. Fully updated fourth edition of this successful guide to a rapidly changing city.
This book reveals the history, legends and native character of Budapest with vivid images and detailed text. Travellers are guided with lively detail to everything that makes Budapest a slightly ‘different’ European capital, from its superb architecture, famous and infamous inhabitants, to food and wine.
Unexpected historical details reveal what the Habsburg 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 Buda.
Illustrations: Full colour throughout with photographs, reproductions, maps and floor plans.
