Hungary has only recently been re-discovered as one of Europe's treasuries of architecture and design. A voyage into the homes and countryside of this exotic European state, Living in Hungary opens in Budapest, where the inhabitants of Buda and Pest unwind in elegant cafés or bathhouses. Beyond the capital, a Danube cruise leads into the magyar provinces, Hungary's wine-producing regions, such as Tokaj, and glorious palaces and castles tucked away in the country's baroque heart. The 18-page Insider's Guide at the end of the book not only includes the best hotels, restaurants, cafés, and museums on offer, but also a whole range of original ideas for visitors who want to get a true taste of living in Hungary: traditional thermal baths and health centers,horseback-riding clubs, natural parks, wine tours, boat trips, and festival dates.
