You can count on Rick Steves to tell you what you really need to know when traveling in Budapest.

In this guide, you'll find a thorough exploration of 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-19-century Golden Age: the Parliament, Opera House, Great Synagogue, and Heroes' Square. 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 colorully 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 get up-to-date recommendations about what is worth your time and money. More than just reviews and directions, a Rick Steves guidebook is a tour guide in your pocket.

Rick produces a public television series (Rick Steves' Europe), a public radio show (Travel with Rick Steves), and an app and podcast (Rick Steves Audio Europe); writes a bestselling series of guidebooks and a nationally syndicated newspaper column; organizes guided tours that take thousands of travelers to Europe annually; and offers an information-packed website (RickSteves.com).

Cameron Hewitt writes and edits guidebooks for Rick Steves’ Europe. He first visited Budapest on a lark in 1999…and now he can’t stay away. From Budapest’s colorful and quirky history, to its grandiose architecture, to its mouthwatering food, to its uniquely enjoyable thermal baths, Cameron can’t get enough of this enthralling, enigmatic, exhilarating city. When he’s not on the road, Cameron lives in Seattle with his wife, Shawna.
