The sights are divided into the Buda, Óbuda and Pest districts, and other places of interest near by are also mentioned to save time and effort.
The other fantastic thing about this book is that it has the history of the buildings and places mentioned as well that of the country. I went to Budapest in July for week, now it's December and I still flick through the book because it's a great read.
I recommend it to anyone going to Budapest for the first time or indeed revisiting it.
I lived there for 8 years and know the place very well, but even I discovered some new things in this book. Friends who go on holiday to Hungary are always asking for advice on what to do and where to go, so in future I shall just recommend this book and let them get on with it!
Having visited Budapest many times, I don't think this book is the best book as a starter. I would recommend this book for your return visits.
84 'sights' of Budapest are covered, each with 2-3 pages of background/ history/ why it's there/ why it survived/ how to get there etc.
Anyone reading the whole book will have a reasonable knowledge of Hungarian history and culture by the end of its 244 pages, certainly more than enough to make a most enjoyable - and informed - visit to the city.
