Description

Dance your way across the Danube, with Lonely Planet’s Budapest Cityguide on your iPhone. This cultured, historically rich city fully justifies its nickname of ‘The Paris of Central Europe’: broad boulevards such as Andrássy út give way to elegant greenspace such as the Városliget (City Park), the culture is rich and venerable and the people dignified. And, like Paris, you’ll need help from the world’s leading guidebook publisher to really find the best it has to offer!

So what does the Budapest City Guide app have that the book doesn’t? Well, let’s say you’re tired and hungry after a morning exploring Castle Hill, and you need somewhere to kick back and hoe into a goulash. Or you’ve heard rumours of a great club kitted out like a Soviet-era canteen, but don’t know the details. Or you’re looking for the oldest of the city’s many Turkish baths to soak up some steam. What to do? Search for your ideal venue by location, category or name, and use our intelligent maps to lead you right to the door. And, of course, Lonely Planet’s famous history, language, food and arts chapters (and more) are now forever in your back pocket. Essential!
