The World Heritage Convention added the “the Buda Castle District and the panoramic view of Budapest as seen along the Danube and bounded by an area stretching from Margit Bridge to Gellért Hill” to its list of protected sites in 1987. In 2002, as an extension to the already existing site, Andrássy Street was added to the World Heritage List, together with its surrounding historical areas, the Millenium Underground and Heroes’ Square.

This beautiful, 2.5km long avenue of Budapest – named after late prime minister Gyula Andrássy – was built between 1872 and 1876. Paying tribute to the Millenium, in 1896 Europe’s first underground railway was opened underneath it. The famous route through the capital is lined with homogenous eclectic Neo-Renaissance palaces with splendid facades, magnificent stairways and inner halls that stretch from one end to the other, for example The Hungarian State Opera House, Dechsler-house and Hungarian College of the Art of Dance. Most were built between 1876 and 1884 and were designed by Miklós Ybl. and other outstanding architects of the era.
