You can count on Rick Steves to tell you what you really need to know when traveling in Budapest.
Following this book’s self-guided walks, you’ll explore 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-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 winemaking capital of Eger, and colorfully tiled Pécs.
