This street is located in city Center, its maybe not the most glorious or the beautiful in Budapest but for me its a very special street because in my last visit i been there a lot because my final bus station was there.
The street is full of shops, restaurants and even some stands in the corners that selling many silly stuff...
I dont know about too special buildings in this street but the architecture is nice... nice hotels (Novotel, Mercure, Best Western, Astoria), some old buildings that i really liked, some churches, everything is renovated.
This street is located close to Vaci utca and leads also to the Keleti train station. In my last visit to Budapest (summer, 2003) it was my firsytt stop when i went down from the bus which i came with from the hotel.
This was a very nice evening and i had luck to see the sunset over Erszebeth bridge.
New York Palace Hotel former New York Kavehaz
I came here on my arrival to live in Budapest
and exploring the various cafes and boulevards.
I came to the New York Kavehaz or New York Cafe
as it was known and would sit upstairs and drink
a cappucinno and read a good book.
The walls were decorated with portraits of
famous Hungarian writers, poets and artists
whom used to frequent the establishment.
It was a shame when they closed their doors a few
years later, but lets hope they can return some
of it`s former glory and one might come in
and visit the cafe and procrastinate upon
life with a good book and a creamy capuccinno!
The protestant church on Szilágyi square
This is one of the best known churches in Budapest. you find it on the Szilágyi Dezső square right on the bank of the Danube, almost in front of the Parliament building. Impossible to miss it with it`s its caracteristic shape and rooftop. It was built in neo-gothic-secessionist style among 1892 and 1896 according to Samu Petz`s plans, thanks to the contribution of the Capitol and the protestants of Budapest.
The tower wich looks like a minareth is 65 metres tall and it never shades the church itself. The rooftop is covered by Zsolnay pyrogranit cheramics.
The City Park
The Millenary Monument is an enormous parade ground called Hosok tere (Heroe's Square). In its center stads an 85 m semicircular open colonade divided into two parts. This was built for the thousandth anniversary of Hungary's existence.
At its center is a 36 m column with a winged Archangel Gabriel on the top, holding the Cross of Lorraine in one hand and the crown of Hungary in the other.
