The more than 100-year-old Grand Boulevard is the heart and soul of Pest. Thousands rush along parts of the boulevard during the day on their way to work or university, and then are replaced by people hurrying to dinners, the theater, parties or home in the evening. The world’s longest interconnected and busiest trams (numbers 4 and 6) run along the 4km long boulevard, which spans from Danube to Danube and connects important districts (district 135th6th7th8th9th). If we start our way from Jászai Mari Square, we can see Petőfi Bridge ahead, and Margaret Island behind us, while on the left side stands the Vígszínház and Kino, offering the most delicious cheesecakes of the city; then comes the Nyugati Railway Station and the Művész Cinema. Afterwards, we proceed towards OktogonMadách TheaterNew York Café and a Hungarian Art Nouveau masterpiece: the Museum of Applied Arts.
The list goes on and on, but we recommend strolling along the Grand Boulevard and discovering the best places by yourself – with a little help from our articles.
