Ajtósi Dürer sor is a road in the XIV. district of Budapest, Hungary, along south-eastern edge of Városliget, between Dózsa György út and Hungária körút, (Hungarian Avenue). The buildings date back from the end of the 19th century and the interwar period. Its name was given in 1929 on the occasion of the 400th anniversary of Albrecht Dürer's death.[1]

HistoryEdit

It was built 1847 originally named István sor/ German: Stephans Weg (Stephan Road) after Archduke Stephen, making reference to the neighboring quarter of Herminamező, which is named after his twin sister Archduchess Hermine of Austria, who in 1842 died. The same logic lead to the quarter name of Istvánmező, the István sor was part of the borderline in between them.[2]

The connection between the Dózsa György út to Hermina was rebaptized Ajtósi Dürer sor to commemorate the 400 years anniversary of the Albrecht Dürers death. The short section between Hermina and Francia út remained István sor until 1949, when it was due to the anti-nobility ideology of the Communist Regime restyled, too.[3]
