The station was opened on 7 November 1984 as part of the extension from Lehel tér. On 14 December 1990 the line was extended further north to Újpest-központ.[3]

The station is located beneath the intersection of Váci Avenue and Róbert Károly Boulevard, near Árpád bridge. It is also a major public transport hub.[4]

The area has several high-rise offices and governmental buildings, including the headquarters of the Hungarian Police, the National Health Insurance Fund (Országos Egészségbiztosítási Pénztár), Hungarian State Treasury (Magyar Államkincstár) and the National Pension Insurance Directorate (Országos Nyugdíjbiztosítási Főigazgatóság).[4]

From its inauguration until 31 January 2020, the station was called Árpád híd (Árpád Bridge). It then was renamed in honour of the former president of Hungary.
