FISHERMAN’S BASTION, BUDAPEST

Fisherman's Bastion, Budapest

Back on the castle that isn’t a castle, you’ll find an impressive neo-gothic terrace with incredible views over the Danube. The Fisherman’s Bastion was built during 1895 and 1902 and takes its name from the guild of fishermen that were responsible for defending that part of the city walls during the Middle Ages.

As well as the viewing terrace and walking paths, the Fisherman’s Bastion has seven incredible looking towers, each one representing one of the Magyar tribes that settled in the Carpathian Basin in 896.

This was a fabulous way to spend a couple of hours exploring and taking pictures… if you are in Budapest, I think it is an absolutely must-see.
