This is how Andrassy Avenue, during the days of Emperor Franz Joseph, became the most fashionable road in Budapest. With time, many cultural institutes and important museums, musical institutions and more, were built here. Many theaters were built with time, which gave the avenue its nickname, "Broadway of Pest."
In the vibrant avenue there are cafes and entertainment areas. If you are standing at the start, at Elizabeth Square, you can see at the opposite end the Heroe's Square, with the 1000 Year Monument at its center, right behind which is a large public and impressive park.
For its architectural beauty, as well as important buildings spread across, the avenue was crowned a World Heritage Site in 2002. When you wander around you can see the large and impressive Opera House. Not far away is the Music Academy, named after the composer and piano genius Franz Liszt. There are some of the more interesting museums in Budapest here, like the Museum of Terrorism.
