A lavishly illustrated guide to the sights of Budapest, any first time visitor would find this guide very useful. The independent traveller may find some of the restaurant, shopping and hotel recommendations rather pedestrian, however.
A useful, colourful guide to the city's highlights. There are plenty of photos and recommended historical sites alongside the usual Eyewitness suggested hotels and restaurants. There is a pull-out map.
This excellent volume recently replaced the Hungary Green Guide. Thankfully its tighter focus on the capital has not lessened the quality of its countrywide coverage. Sights and attractions are rated with the famous star system.
A wonderful guide to the city from Granta. Part one is detailed social and cultural history of the city, part two contains six suggested walks and part three contains a brief selection of practical information. Definitely more useful as a cultural companion rather than a practical guide.
Author James Stewart has written an enjoyable guide, if one that is a little confusing in its arrangement. Practical details and sightseeing tips are presented in an informal style, with a reasonable introductory essay on Slovenian history and culture.
A brilliant guide to walking the Carpathians, some of the finest hiking terrain in Europe. A multitude of routes of varying difficulties are explained and mapped. Also contains sections on skiing, mountain biking, climbing and such.
