Maps

Lonely Planet's Budapest City Map covers the more popular parts of town in detail.

The best folding maps of the city are Car-tographia's 1:22,000 (690Ft) and 1:28,000 (570Ft) ones. If you plan to explore the city thoroughly, the Budapest Atlas, also from Cartographia, is indispensable. It comes in the same scale (1:20,000) but two sizes: a smaller format (1950Ft) and a larger one (2600Ft). There is also a 1:25,000 pocket atlas of just the Inner Town available for 1210Ft.

Many bookshops, including Libri Kony-vpalota (p66), stock a wide variety of maps. Cartographia (Map p84; ยงยง 312 6001; www.carto graphia.hu; VI Bajcsy-Zsilinszky lit 37; S 10am-6pm Mon-Fri; (M) M3 Arany Janos utca) has its own outlet in Budapest, but it's not self-service, which can be annoying. A better bet is Terkepkiraly (Map King; Map p84; @ 472 0505; VI Bajcsy-Zsilinszky lit 23; S 10am-6pm Mon-Fri; (M) M3 Arany Janos utca) or the smaller Parisi Udvar Konyvesbolt (Parisi Udvar Bookshop; Map p86; @ 235 0379; V Petofi Sandor uta 2; S 9am-7pm Mon-Fri, 10am-2pm Sat; (M) M3 Ferenciek tere) in the Parisi Udvar.
