Fishermen's Bastion (Budapest, Hungary) - Budapest

Fishermen's Bastion (Budapest, Hungary)

Budapest Castle District and Hill (4/6) Castle Hill District Review

Let's go to the Fishermen's Bastion. There are two theories about the origin: Some say that there was a fish market in the Middle Age; others, that the Guild of Fishermen defended this part of the walls.

One theory or another, the views are breathtaking as you can see.

The second pic shows the statue of St. Stephen.

Castle (Budapest, Hungary) - Budapest

Castle (Budapest, Hungary)

Budapest Castle District and Hill (1/6) Castle Hill District Review

I would consider four parts in the Castle District:

- The city itself, with beautiful buildings and streets.
- Mathias Church
- The Fishermen's Bastion
- Royal Palace

Here you can see pics of the city; in order:
- Wienna Gate/Bécsi Kapu
- Lutheran Church
- Fortuna utca
- Országház utca
- Uri utca

Directions: How to get there:

Thers is a funicular from Clark Ádám tér , at the Buda end of the Chain Bridge. There is also a bus from Moszkva tér (in Buda).

Now, it hosts three Museums:
