Budapest the Hot Place to Visit


A long time ago, on a visit to Budapest when the Communists still ruled, I visited the Gellert Baths for an old-fashioned Central European experience. (It was on that trip that I first went to the New York Café, celebrated by John Lukacs in his wonderful book Budapest 1900; it had been renamed by the Communists the Hungaria Kávéház and was where I met with a group of Hungarian classical liberals with whom I had corresponded). Now the BBC reports that an entire thermal lake has been discovered beneath Budapest. All the more reason to visit.
