Things to Do and See Around Budapest's Broadway
The intersection of Nagymező utca and Andrássy Avenue (a block north of the Budapest Opera) is nicknamed as Budapest's Broadway. Some exquisite theaters, as well as the Moulin Rouge nightclub, the Manó Mai House of Photography, the Ernst Gallery, and some very good restaurants, are all located here.
Theaters in Nagymező utca - Thália and Radnóti are both traditional theaters. Operett features musicals, and Mikroszkóp is famous for its stand-up comedy. The most famous Hungarian stand-up comedian, Géza Hofi (1936-2002), was the star here for years. His statue stands in front of the building.
