Certainly, you should walk Andrassy ut from end to end. This street is been put under protection by UNESCO. It’s wonderful street. Street’s start Erzsebest Ter and street’s end Hösök Tere.
Monument of the important heros of Magyar history is on Hösök Tere. Figure of the under every hero show the part of the heros life. Also celebration and formal ceremony is done in this square.
Nyugati palyaudvar is old train station of the Budapest. We was wonder and entered. Maybe you interest.
Newyok cafe is the most beautiful cafe of the Budapest. You go and drink coffee. I couldn’t enter because very crowded. If you have time, worth waiting for this.
Ruin bar is pretty prevalent in Budapest. The first is Szimpla Kert. it’s draw interest with different concept. Photograph quality is bad but I haven’t another photograph.
Opera house and Stephen’s basilica is on Andrassy Ut. Opera house is the most magnificent building on the street. If you interest , You can buy ticket for opera. Absolutely, you should see inside the building.
When you walk on the street, you can see pictures on the building wall.
Aziz stephan’s mummified hand is in this basilica. Also this basilica is the most high building of the Budapest. Gelarto Rosa and Divino is opposite basilica. If you drink wine, Divino is good choice.
Gelarto rosa making rose-shaped ice cream. If you have love, you can lock to love lock tree of Erzsebest Ter. Normally, People lock their love any bridge in europe. This is different in Budapest.
When you go to near Danube river, you will see a girl child sculpted like a boy. You can see crowded tourist group of the around this sculpt. Don’t panic. You go and caress its knee because It is believed that those who are caress the knee of this statue will come back to Budapest. (I do not know coincidence but I was caress and come back.)
Chain bridge is impressive with architecture. Also it has story. According to legend, bridge’s architect trust his work so much. He said he would throw himself off the bridge if there was a defect in his work. No one really found a single fault. Until a child comes out and says that the lions on the bridge do not have tongues. According the legend, bridge’s architect kill oneself.
This part was Pest side. Next writing will about the Buda side.
