Walking in Hungary by Tom Chrystal and Beata Dosa is a Cicerone walking guide to one of central Europe’s most accessible and ideal walking countries. Hungary’s Great Plain often dominates walkers’ image of the country and as a result many visitors are unaware of the ridges of the Matra and Borzsony or the limestone outcrops of the Bukk which dispel the myth that Hungary is flat. Hundreds of tracks and trails which were once used by the Roman legions, medieval miners, Turkish janissaries, pillaging Hussites, herders, beekeepers, charcoal burners and foundry workers zigzag across the highlands.
These ancient trails now form a network of walking path which the guide explores extensively. Valuable information on accommodation in rural Hungary, public transport and the intriguing ‘little forest trains’ are all included. The author also gives an insight into the history and geology which have shaped the landscape and supplies tips on how to survive the countryside. Useful Hungarian words and phrases as well as a glossary of Hungarian topographical terms are also featured to aid map interpretation. Detailed route descriptions are accompanied by line drawings mapping the routes as well as colour photographs illustrating the highlights of the route.
