A second edition of this in-depth guide which gives information on where to stay, a complete round-up of museums and art galleries, and a full guide to bars, restaurants and other entertainments, as well as a detailed guide to the city area by area.Review:
Ever since it quietly kick-started the collapse of the Soviet Bloc in 1989, Hungary and its vibrant capital city, Budapest, has remained slightly in the shadow of the other great eastern European capital cities, Berlin and Prague. Time Out's guide to Budapest confirms that if you want a city with a remarkable history, extraordinary architecture, cheap accommodation and bath houses to die for, Budapest has no competition. Situated on the banks of the Danube, Budapest is one of the most laid-back cities in the former eastern bloc, and has experienced a much less painful transition over the last few years than most eastern European cities. Time Out's Guide takes you through the rapidly improving museums and galleries, cool clubs, bars and restaurants, and also offers some sensible tips on how to negotiate the infamous difficulties of the language. Particularly recommended is its section on the city's marvellous Ottoman bath houses, which are a must for any visitor! -- Jerry Brotton
