У меня, разумеется, последнее издание, а не это. Замечательный путеводитель, который очень интересно и читать просто так, и использовать по назначению.

A book full of wit is very informative about Hungary, its history, and personal opinion. This is a book you can read for pleasure without ever visiting Hungary. I bought this book before a short break to Budapest and quickly became enthralled in Torok's style of writing. He gives historical, political and general interesting information unlike any guide book on the market.

Some of the information has changed regarding some restaurants, but it is certainly worth following the walks he suggests in
It is also on my bedside table. I have not been to Budapest in years and do not foresee going in the near future. But this book makes me want to go. It is intelligent and funny. Torok is like a friend who takes you around and shows you his home . . . which is exactly what he is doing.
This is what all guide books should be - personal history, a sense of place, a sense of your place within a place. Go to Lonely Planet if you need to know what hostel to stay in; go to Torok if you care about the neighborhood within which your hostel is located.
Very useful and written in a wicked manner. Now off to the city to explore the newly discovered sites thanks to this book :)
