Visible Cities Budapest: A City Guide
With rich images and detailed text, the tumultuous history, local legends, and colorful character of Budapest are revealed in this visual travel guide. Travelers will discover what the Hapsburg 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 Buddha. The coffeehouses of Budapest and their resident poets, the steamy Turkish baths, and the old haunts of the pashas, the stern-faced symbols of Communism and the Renaissance splendors of a vanished world, are described in lively detail. Eight guided walks highlight the city’s ancient history, grandiose architecture, vibrant culture, savory restaurants, and local traditions.
