Lonely Planet Hungary

The 7th edition of the LONELY PLANET guide to HUNGARY is out. Such general guidebooks are usually good on cities, architecture, history, food, travel, and the like, but weak on natural history. This book is the exception as there are several passages and photos related to birdwatching. Probirder even gets a good mention ! Check it out.
