Holiday Travel Guide
Andrassy Avenue showing street scenes as well as a couple

Peruse designer boutiques, historical buildings and museums as you explore the street at the heart of Hungary’s fascist and communist history.

Andrassy Avenue is an important shopping boulevard with historical architecture in the heart of Budapest. Boutiques, cafés and restaurants occupy its magnificent neo-Renaissance buildings. Visit designer stores and take in the chic atmosphere of this prosperous street.

Among the highlights of the boulevard is the Magyar Állami Operaház, the state opera house. Admire its imposing façade, with columns and intricate features. Watch an opera in the ornate auditorium, which has a capacity for 1,261 people. Take a guided tour to appreciate the marble staircases, paintings, sculptures and other Baroque gems found inside.

Visit the lively Oktogon Square in the center of the street. Sit in a café and watch people go by to get a sense of the local culture. Encounter the House of Terror Museum, which has exhibits on Hungary’s fascist and communist regimes.

Over the festive period, attend the Christmas Market in Vörösmarty Square. Admire a statue of the poet the square is named after as you purchase snacks and refreshments from the Gerbeaud Café, which has been here since 1870. Some of the biggest names in fashion design can be found on the adjacent Deák Ferenc Street.

Visit the Underground Museum for a history of the city’s subway system. Relax on a patch of grass in the pleasant Erzsébet Square. Embark on a walking tour of the entire street for a more comprehensive understanding of the historic site, which has changed names many times over the years.

Learn the history of the impressive boulevard, which was constructed in 1872 to link City Park to the city center. Discover what brought aristocrats and wealthy businessmen to the neo-Renaissance buildings on the avenue, which is named after Prime Minister Gyula Andrassy.

Get around the large boulevard via the Millennium Underground Railway, which dates back to 1896 and is the oldest subway line in continental Europe.

Andrassy Avenue cuts through the center of Budapest, with City Park at its northeastern point and Erzsebet Square to the southwest. Arrive by metro using one of the many stations scattered along the boulevard, including Bajza Utca, Kodály Körönd and Opera. Ride the tram along Teréz Krt to reach Oktogon in the center of the avenue.
