Andrássy Avenue provides one of Budapest’s most popular venues for strollers.
This radial road, built between 1872 and 1885, indicates the strength of the desire at the time, to develop Budapest into a world-class city.
The buildings and palaces lining the avenue were, in the main, built in the Eclectic and Neo-renaissance styles; one of the most outstanding of these is the State Opera House.
One of the Avenue’s greatest attractions is the Millennium Underground Railway, this was the second to be built world-wide, and the first on the continent.
Andrássy Avenue was placed on the World Heritage List in 2002.
