Can we fall in love with a city? Can we then become so disenchanted with it that we leave it and never come back? 

This book shows you how Budapest is through the glasses of an idealistic humanities student, who moved up to the big city a bit naively, but with an open heart and full of good intentions, and who, eventually, ran away from there in bitter disappointment. 

The book is not fully translated yet from Hungarian. Based on the feedback I receive I will decide on the final edition of the English translation. Sign up to read sample chapters from my upcoming book and tell me your impressions on it!

 

The City and the Girl:

a Journal of My Adventures in Budapest

 

Can we fall in love with a city? Can we then become so disenchanted with it that we leave it and never come back? 

The City and the Girl: a Journal of My Adventure in Budapest is the time capsule of Budapest as it was a decade ago. The book talks about how impersonal big city life can be and about poverty and urban ugliness. It also describes the little miracles you can find living in a place like this: all the exciting discoveries and the things that provoke emotions about the city and your life in it. 

The City and the Girl: a Journal of My Adventures in Budapest is an edited version of my blog from the time when I moved to Budapest. I was head over heels in love with this city and I wanted to write about it because I wanted to show others how, despite all its problems, it was still worthy of love. Three years later I abandoned the blog because I could no longer find good things to say. The bad things I preferred to keep for myself.

The stories are from the past but the message they carry is ultimate. The book encourages you to open your eyes, to leave your comfort zone and see the true face of the place where you live.
