Andrassy Avenue

Andrassy Avenue was completed in 1885 as a way of connecting the city center with the city park. The avenue is surrounded by neo-Renaissance houses and palaces that were constructed by renowned artists and were the homes of Hungary's elite. Because public transport was limited to conserve the site's beauty and character, Andrássy Avenue also became home to the first subway line in continental Europe, the Millennium Underground. Today, visitors can explore the avenue, which is separated into four distinct parts: The Oktogon, which is filled with residential and office buildings; Kodaly Korond, which has some stunning residential villas; Bajza Utca, home to a few embassies and palaces; and Elizabeth Square, which is mostly commercial buildings, shops, and upscale boutiques, including Burberry and Louis Vuitton.
