Budapest is a big city, but it is easy to find something special and unique in it every single day. For example a street. In the heart of Budapest we can find many districts that can win the award of “The most beautiful part of Budapest”. Here are my favourites.
District VII. is one of the most popular area of Budapest among young people. The streets are full of ruin pubs, restaurants, garden bars, cafés, steet food bars, so we can say that it is a centre of culture and nightlife also. The renovated Kazinczy Street is home to the orthodox synagogue and also big part of the bars are located on this street.
Andrássy Avenue is part of the World Heritage Site and its construction began in 1872. The avenue connects the city center with City Park. In the 19th century aristocrats, noble families, bankers moved in to the palaces and houses around this area. The Andrássy Avenue has four distinct parts: Elizabeth Square to Oktogon, Oktogon to Kodály körönd, Kodály körönd to Bajza utca and Bajza utca to Heroes’ Square. This part of the city is perfect for walks along the beautiful buildings, cafés, galleries and museums. Main attractions of this area are: Opera, Liszt Ferenc square, House of Terror, Paris Department Store, Heroes’ Square etc.
Gül baba street
Gül Baba street is in the middle of the thousands of other little streets in the hills of Buda. It is only about one hundred metres long and was named after a monk, who died when Buda was conquered, in 1541.
Váci street is the shopping and popular tourist area with many beautiful buildings. Váci utca is bordered by Vörösmarty tér from the North and by the Fővám tér from the south with the Central Market Hall. The northern part of the street is usually a bit crowded, while the southern part has more historical atmosphere. The street is full of bars, cafés, traditional Hungarian restaurants and gift shops.
