Budapest, the capital of Hungary, is often called 'the pearl of the Danube'. The Danube flows through the city and divides it into two parts. The bridge, which connects Buda and Pest, was built only in the 19th century. This fact has given Budapest is modern name. Nowadays, this is a marvellous city with numerous historical buildings, beautiful squares, cozy parks and interesting museums. However, the city is particularly famous for its bathhouses.
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.
