Once the elegant second city of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Budapest, the 'Queen of the Danube', is now being rediscovered as one of the liveliest and most attractive destinations in Europe. Equipped with Michael Jacob's guide, you will be able to get the most out of this fascinating city, whether you're on a weekend break or a longer visit. It will help you discover: the distinct characters of the city's 'two halves' - Buda, set on gently rolling hills, and across the river energetic, modern Pest; the best of its almost 100 thermal springs and 12 medicinal baths; Margaret Island, a leafy park in the centre of the Danube where you can cycle or play tennis; the city of artists, architects and writers; and, its cafes and restaurants, many of them redolent of the city's days of imperial splendour. The book takes the visitor on six walks arranged by district, featuring all the major sites and a personal selection of less well known, often neglected ones.
