Andrássy Road - Andrássy út, Budapest
All the building along the street are national monuments and they have an eclettic facade. They were built by 1872-1876.
Along the street you can find the Opera, the Postamuzeum and very nice square like Oktogon ter and Kodaly Korond. There are also two museums: Hopp Ferenc Kelet-Azsiai Muvszeti Muzeum (Oriental art which come from the Ferenc Hopp collection) and the Rath Gyotgy Muzeum (Chinese and Japanese art)
Andrassy Avenue is worth to see even without Christmas decorations (no wonder the whole 2,3 km long road is part of the world heritage since 2002), but the Xmas lights make it even more special.
Even despite the rather cold weather around this time of the year, it's worth walking along the Avenue to catch some Christmas spirit :)
Andrassy ut is Budapest's most picturesque street. The tree-lined boulevard is enjoyable to walk from start to finish. It is lined with great architecture, museums, and landmarks from its beginning at Erzsebet ter all the way to its end at Heroes' Square.
