    Is This the Right Book for Me?

    If your trip is limited to Hungary, Rick Steves Budapest fits the bill — it's not only a complete guide to the city, but it's also something of a country book in disguise, covering all of Rick's favorite Hungarian destinations.

    If your trip includes Budapest or other Hungarian destinations as part of a wider trip to Eastern Europe — to the Czech Republic, Croatia, Slovenia, and/or Poland — Rick Steves Eastern Europe is probably the better buy. It includes thorough coverage of Rick's select picks in Hungary (Budapest, Eger, and Pécs), albeit with less detail on Budapest as you'll find in Rick Steves Budapest, and without any coverage of Sopron or Budapest's day trips.
