Rich in colourful traditions, Terézváros is the heart of Budapest. In the last 225 years, our district has written its name in the history of the country and the capital.
Pest-Buda was practically the “capital” of Hungary from 1849, a fact that significantly influenced the development of Terézváros. Since 1877, the Sugárút
(Avenue), later Andrássy Road, has been the pride of the city, the centre not only of the district but of the whole city, by now part of the world heritage. By the end of the 19th century, the characteristic palaces of Andrássy Road, the squares breaking up the road had been built, as well as the upper middle class villas with front gardens along the road near the Városliget and in the nearby streets.
By the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, the “Broadway of Pest”, a quarter of theatres and nightclubs had come into being in the neighbourhood of Jókai Street and the Opera, further expanding and growing richer between the world wars. Even today, the district is the cultural centre of the the capital, not only on account of its many theatres and the Opera House, but also thanks to its museums and other cultural institutions.
