It is true that we often find ourselves saying that while visiting Budapest. However, in this instance the title refers to a book – . This isn’t really a tourist guide as such. You will find some of the must-see sights in the book but that is not the point. This is a book full of less obvious things to see. The book includes a description and history of each place/attraction and provides a fascinating insight into the background of the city and the country.

This book might not be suitable as the only guide for the first-time visitor but we’d thoroughly recommend it as a back-up read. With lots of photos, it is well-written, interesting and informative. As repeat visitors to Budapest, it is a book that we have dipped into on many occasions.
