The Fisherman’s Bastion

Looking a bit like one of Walt Disney’s castles the Fisherman’s Bastion or Halászbástya gives one of the best views over Budapest looking out along the Danube River. Built in 1905 and designed by Frigyes Schulek it was built on the site of a medieval fish market and it’s walls are believed to be guarded by the guild of fisherman. Being in the castle district it is only a short stroll from the magnificent Matthias Church. One great photo opportunity is at the south end of the bastion there is a lovely statue of Hungry’s first king, King St. Stephen (Szent István)
