The history of Andrássy Street (‘The Boulevard’) began in the 1870s. It was built in honour of the millennium of the conquest and the founding of the state, the Millennium Celebrations of 1896, with the aim of connecting the city centre and Városliget (City Park). The Millennium Underground Railway was also completed under Andrássy Road for the same event.
The residential mansions built along the boulevard offered the aristocracy and the upper middle class of the turn of the century a rich living space for their everyday life and a vibrant venue for their social life.
Luxury still dominates the section of Andrássy út between Erzsébet tér and Octogon. On the ground floor of the mansions, elegant cafes and restaurants alternate with the boutiques of the largest global brands, including the shops of Burberry, Gucci, Hublot, Breitling, Rolex, Jimmy Choo and NOBU.
. Andrássy út is also one of the centres of cultural life in Budapest: the Hungarian State Opera House is located in it, the Budapest Operetta Theatre is in the crossing Nagymező utca, as well as a number of galleries, exhibition spaces and museums line it.
The A47 building is the starting point to the most popular and most intimate square in Andrássy út, Liszt Ferenc tér, the gate to the bustling Boulevard. This is the square that provides the most exciting gastronomic experience in the city, where guest terraces touch each other under large shade trees. The wonderful art-deco building of the Academy of Music, which is the eternal memory of Franz Liszt after whom the square was named, closes our walk around the A47.
Since 2002, Andrássy út and its surroundings have been on the UNESCO World Heritage List with its magnificent buildings and the Millennium Underground Railway running under it.
