The Fisherman's Bastion.
The Fisherman's Bastion is one of the most famous sights of Budapest. Supposedly, this place has got its name from the fish market, which was situated nearby. Nowadays, this place of interest has another function - it has been turned into a romantic place. Its hidden recesses and stone benches have become one of the most favourite places for couples. The bastion itself with all its marvellous towers and fabulous staircases resembles a wedding cake. Its towers feature truly stunning panoramic views of the Danube, Margaret Island and the ancient part of the city.
This magnificent street in the centre of the city was founded in 1870. The avenue, that resembles world-famous Avenue des Champs-Élysées, lies between Erzsebet Square and Heroes' Square. Every year this beautiful place hosts famous Budapest Parade. Deep in the ground under Andrassy Avenue there is the underground Millennium line, which was built in 1896 in honour of the change of centuries. In 2002 Andrassy Avenue and this underground line were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List.
