Fisherman's Bastion (1)

Fisherman's Bastion is located on Buda side over looking the Danube and in front of Matthias Church. This neo-Gothic neo-Romanesque terrace was built in 1895. It looks older because it was inspired by a Medieval wall that stood in the same location. During Medieval times, this area of the city had wall that was maned by fisherman. They would guard  the wall and sale there catch.  That is where the name comes from. In my experience it is very crowded, but worth it. The view is amazing. You can see the Parliament building as well as Sziget Island. This is just a breath taking place
