There is plenty to do around the Opera House
, the heart of the VI District, or the cultural and theatrical centre of Budapest
. Located along the Andrássy Avenue
, its grandeur perfectly matches that of the surrounding building and yet still stands out!
Because the Opera House is located along Budapest's main boulevard, our first pick is the one and only Andrássy Avenue
! In second and third place are two great theatres of the city's theatrical district; the Operetta Theatre
and the Puppet Theatre
, representing two different types of theatrical art. The House of Terror
, also along the Andrássy is a somewhat shocking museum of Secret Police activity in Budapest.
Our next two picks are located on Liszt Ferenc Square just off the boulevard: the Statue
of the great Hungarian musician Liszt Ferenc and the Academy of Music
founded by the great musician himself. These two attractions are surrounded by lovely little cafés and restaurants making it a great place to stop by before lunch.
The last four attractions are all located in the circumference of the all too well advertised Hero's Square
: the Art Gallery
and Museum of Fine Arts
on either end of the square, and the Széchényi Spa
, the largest in Central Europe located just behind in the City Park.
