This map covers the following areas:
People say Budapest is the Paris of Central Europe. Maybe that statement is true because it combines a combination of western luxuries, architectural beauty, and cosmopolitan European traditions. But this baroque city is still connected to its Eastern European heritage with the steaming baths, incredibly complex language and lusty cuisine.
Budapest straddles a curve in the river Danube which bisects two distinct parts. The east side is known as Pest and the west side is known as Buda, hence Budapest. It s a very logical, well laid out city.
Castle Hill is the premier destination for visitors and contains many of Budapest s most important monuments and museums, and great views of Pest across the blue Danube. Pastel houses lining cobbled streets and stone balustrade overlooks give this citadel a fairy tale quality, while bullet holes from the unsuccessful 1956 uprising pockmark many buildings.
The main map of Budapest covers a large part of the central city in detail and is fully indexed with hotels, sites, architecture, metro stations and parks. The City Center inset map expands the old city grid and enables you to stroll the warren of old streets and absorb Hungarian history and culture at your leisure. The inset map of Budapest Metro facilitates your travel throughout the city.
One example of the importance of on site research: when this Budapest map was first conceived in the early 1990 s we ran into a unique problem with sudden unannounced street name changes. Streets named after heroic Socialist revolutionaries were changed without notice. The streets were renamed after heroes of the Hungarian National Liberation. Other maps who rely on out of date documents for updating still reflect the old street names. Imagine publishing a map and unknowingly using names like Karl Marx Ave. and Lenin Square. Whoops! Fortunately, with our STREETWISE® Budapest Map, we adhered to a policy of physically researching and updating the city, thereby avoiding these sorts of mistakes.
Our pocket size map of Budapest is laminated for durability and accordion folding for effortless use. The STREETWISE® Budapest map is one of many detailed and easy-to-read city street maps designed and published by STREETWISE®. Buy your STREETWISE® Budapest map today and you too can navigate Budapest, Hungary like a native.

We spent some time to give the site a face lift. We are working on a lot of changes in the background to improve your experience and some user interface changes come with that.
We aren't ready to release all of the background changes or the interface changes but we are ready to release the main cosmetic changes since they don't need the background changes to be ready.
These changes make browsing the site a lot easier on mobile devices and touch devices. We improved scalling and presentation. There are plenty of places left for improvement but we think we are off to a good start.
As always, we are happy to hear your feedback any time.
