Budapest. The Soul and Mirror of Europe.
In Pest, arguably the most important sight is Andrassy ut. As far as Kodaly Korond and Oktogon both sides are lined with large shops and flats built close together. Between there and Heroes' Square the houses are detached and altogether grander. Under the whole runs continental Europe's oldest Underground railway, most of whose stations retain their original appearance. One of the jewels of Andrassy ut is the Hungarian State Opera House. Statue Park, a theme park with striking statues of the Communist era, is located just outside the main city and is accessible by public transport. The city is home to the largest synagogue in Europe (Dohany Street Synagogue), and second largest working in the World .The synagogue is located in the Jewish district taking up several blocks in central Budapest bordered by Kiraly utca, Wesselenyi utca, Grand Boulevard (Budapest) and Bajcsy Zsilinszky road.
