Andrássy Avenue

is the Hungarian Champs-Élysées. It was built for the millenial celebrations of 1896 and connects Városliget and the Heroes’ Square to the downtown area. Underneath the widest and most elegant street in Budapest runs the Millennium Underground line. The whole area is part of the UNESCO World Heritage. Andrássy Avenue is divided into four parts. The section between Erzsébet Square and Oktogon is dominated by world-famous luxury brands. In addition to haute-couture parlours, you'll also find the Opera, the “Broadway of Pest”, Liszt Ferenc Square and the Paris Department Store here.

From the Oktogon

to Kodály Körönd, the avenue is expanded by a service road and a tree-lined walkway on each side. Here, you'll find the House of Terror and residential buildings. The streetview slightly changes between Kodály Körönd and Bajza Street, as here the palaces have front yards. From Bajza Street to Heroes' Square there are individualvillas surrounded by gardens, similar to Pasarét or Rózsadomb. There are several embassies here, but you will also bump into art galleries and caféson the way.
