Besides being a pit stop on the Amazing Race, Fisherman's Bastion is an amazing terrace of stone overlooking the Danube River. We were fortunate to be staying at the Castle District Hilton which is right next to the Bastion. We had incredible views of the Bastion from our window. It looks amzing at night with the night sky and the lights.

The Bastion si named after the fisherman's guild that was responsible for defending the city during the middle ages. The seven towers of the Bastion represent the seven Magyar tribes that settled the area. The stone walls, paths, statues and windows are beautiful. They reminded me of some of the cloisters in France.

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