The Danube is the most adventurous river in Europe, and Budapest is the city where this intrepid river is at its most spectaculer. The Danube is part of the city, which simultaneously constitutes a part of the river- they pulsate together. Their fate and history are welded into one. Together they have experienced much misfortune, as well as prosprity. The Danube is an eternal muse inspiring music, poetry, fiction and imagr. Lászlo Lugosi Lugo discovers its image through photographs.

Budapest has few parts as atmospheric as its old Jewish quarter, with its narrow, small streets, beautiful synagogues, and classicist and Art Nouveau buildings. Peeping into courtyards gives the feel of the past. The selected walks in this book let us glance into a former world-  a world which is dynamically reviving at present.
