Description

••• Explore dynamic & eclectic places with a local •••

Explore Budapest the right way: like a local, rather than a tourist. This guide will lead you to some of the not-to-be-missed sights that any traveler should see. But more importantly, it focuses is on the harder-to find places that make life in Budapest so sweet for the locals. The Budapest Insider's Guide features carefully curated entries that will ensure that you skip the tourist traps in favor of savoring the local’s favorite spots, such as:

—The fantastic food markets,
—The wine shops and bars where you can sample “bor” (wine) from the many up-and-coming Hungarian regions,
—The dynamic restaurant scene, with both recommendations for both modern and traditional eateries,
—The cafés and bakeries which Hungarians can’t live without,
—The quirky bars, occasionally located behind unmarked doors, including the Budapest phenomenon of “ruin bars,”
—The tiny art galleries and ateliers,
—The stunning architecture in styles from neo-Baroque to art nouveau,
—The eclectic boutiques and design markets stocking one-off items made by young local designers,
—The mineral-rich thermal bath houses, some of which date from the 16th century,
—Theaters from the elegant Palace of Arts, to simple dive bars featuring spirited folk music and dance,
—The numerous child-friendly activities (which will also be fun for the adults!)

The Hungarian language is notoriously difficult, but don’t let that stop you from discovering Budapest beyond the “Top Ten” lists. For the price of an eszpresszó, The Budapest Insider's Guide will help you explore the city’s energizing blend of Hapsburg-era elegance melded with modern creativity. It will lead you to all the right places, and not waste your time on the wrong ones.
