Visible Cities Budapest: A City Guide
Budapest is a place of splendour and mystery. The meeting point between East and West, it is home to steamy Turkish baths and stately coffee houses. Majestic bridges span the Danube, linking Buda's mediaeval streets and secret courtyards with the broad boulevards and Art Nouveau exuberance of Pest. Visible Cities Budapest, now in a fully-revised third edition, tells you the stories behind the city's grand facades: what the 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. Written by resident authors, with guided walks, clear and usable maps, beautiful colour photos and in-depth sections on food, history, art, architecture and music, Visible Cities Budapest does more than inform -- it reveals.
