Book Description

18 May 2007 Cadogan Guide Vienna Prague Budapest
Now fully redesigned, this new edition of Cadogan's unique three-city guide contains the most up-to-the-minute practical information and listings, along with color photographs and maps. Vienna, Prague and Budapest are growing in popularity as city break destinations thanks to their beautiful city centers and increasing number of trendy restaurants and hotels. Prague offers the ultimate romantic getaway with its stunning medieval Old Town, cobbled streets, gothic churches and magnificent castle, the largest ancient castle in the world. The center of Vienna is UNESCO-listed and is a cultural paradise, featuring several excellent museums, the stately Imperial Palace that once served as the residence to the powerful Hapsburg dynasty, and Sigmund Freud's house. Meanwhile Budapest, a veritable fountain of medicinal waters, is home to dozens of swimming pools and bathing halls dating back to the Turkish Occupation and a wonderful place to relax in a spa after all that sight-seeing and shopping.

4.0 out of 5 stars Extremely useful 31 Oct 2008
Format:Paperback
This is an excellent book, packed with useful advice. We visited all three countries using this one book and found it extremely informative. We used the top 5 recommendations shown for each country and was not disappointed. If you are only spending a couple of days in each country then take this book with you - it will save you a lot of time working out where to go!

2.0 out of 5 stars Could be so much better 27 July 2010
By Andy Millward VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This guide has an inbuilt advantage in that all other publishers retain separate guides for Prague, Vienna and Budapest, but none combining all three. As such, Cadogan could have cornered the market but this book does not deliver the goods.

I can't yet vouch for the accuracy of the information (my trip is in a couple of weeks), but in terms of layout and formatting it is miles behind the excellent Dorling Kindersley guides. The pages are not easy to read, they seem poorly laid out and fail to draw the reader's attention to key features in each city, there are no pictures at all, maps are tucked away in the centre of each section rather than as an easy access pull-out. In short, not at all a user-friendly guide for easy use on the move.

My only other Cadogan guide is for India, which scores by having greater depth of information. Here, there is nothing unique other than the fact that the three cities are combined. A great pity.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wien - or should that be Wein? 17 Aug 2007
Format:Paperback
I cannot vouch for the Prague or Budapest thirds of this book but the Vienna section is littered with grisly and disheartening spelling mistakes; These errors are compounded, in one case, by an attempt to derive a false etymology from a false spelling. I think it is discourteous of publishers to offer for sale a book so peppered with mistakes. There are other (and more trustworthy) guides to Vienna.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Guide 12 Jun 2007
By George Seyfarth - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We planned to visit these never before seen cities on a recent tour. We looked in libraries and bookstores for guides to them and found this one which had all the information we needed and more for our tour,and we would certainly look at these author's tour guides in the future for other destinations.

4.0 out of 5 stars A nicely succinct guide. 17 Oct 2007
By John J. Kelliher - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
We used this guide for just Budapest and Prague, not Vienna. It was usefully succinct in its description of the importance of the sights it reviewed. Also, it helped those having a limited amount of time to identify the "must see" sights and gave a quick introduction to the money, culture, etc., of the country involved. The only reason it's not 5 stars is that it failed to lay out walking routes to hit the sights it mentions, something that would have been even more useful.

3.0 out of 5 stars No Photographs 14 Feb 2008
By N. Podaci - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
One of the reasons I chose to order this book was Amazon's mention of "color photographs." There are NONE, other than the cover. In fact there are no photographs at all. The very few illustrations are maps, no better than I've seen in the other books.

Where this book seems superior to others is in the depth of its descriptions. For example, over two full pages on the Charles Bridge. Each country/city also has an introduction with several pages of history and art history.

The font is of nice quality but just a little too small. I don't want to be whipping out the reading glasses while I'm sightseeing. Also, the book is nicely divided into the three cities, so could perhaps be cut into three parts to carry around -- but the publisher chose to put the Language section (3 languages) in the back. Why not put the Czech language section at the end of the Prague section? That would also put it closer to the restaurant listing, where a language reference would be handy.

I'm going to read this thoroughly so I can better appreciate the sights, but a different book is going with me.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor Maps, Poor Information, No Photos 3 Aug 2008
By Misti Mcdaniel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Maps are an important part of any guidebook, and the maps in this book are lacking. They do not include hotel locations on city maps nor Metro/bus stops. They have no key and are in a pink/white ink (like Rough Guide), making them difficult to read. In addition, it includes no information for budget travelers; no hostel information nor cheap eats (this book lists anything less than 25 Euros as a "Cheap Eat"). In addition, it does not include a list of bulleted "Must Sees;" it prefers to list sights by location, not importance. As a result, smaller, regional museums take precedence over more important sights, which may be listed in a different neighborhood. In addition, it does not list entrance fees to musuems, it simply says "Admission Charged." After two days, I stop using this book and started asking Tourist Information Offices for maps and suggested sights. This book would be good supplemental information for a tourist on a tour with a guide, but very poor for independent travelers.
