"Fisherman's Bastion" Fisherman's Bastion - Halaszbastya Tip by rcsparty


The Fisherman's Bastion was designed by Frigyes Schulek and got it's name from the nearby fish market. It is also rumored that the Guild of Fisherman defended this part of the wall during the 1700's. The bastion consists of 7 towers, representing the 7 Maygar tribes in the late 9th century. Their are fantastic views of the Danube, and later in the evening the area is not near as crowded with tourist. The statue in the Bastion is of King St Stephen, the first Hungarian king.

Address: Castle District (Varhegy) in Buda
Directions: It can be reached by the Castle bus (Varbusz) from Moszkva ter.
