"The Fishermen's Bastion..." Budapest Tourist Trap Tip by zwack

Budapest Tourist Traps: 140 reviews and 92 photos


The Fishermen's Bastion received its name from the medieval ramparts system which rose above the suburb named Fishermen's Town; furthermore, there used to be a fish-market behind the ramparts. Beneath the Fishermen's Bastion lies the old suburb of Vízi- város (Water Town), now full of new bindings; its Baroque church towers recall the past. Looking to- wards the north we get a view of the Danube with Margaret Island.
