  Fishermen's Bastion
by belgrade03

The Fisherman?s Bastion is located near the Matthias church, above the fishermen?s village of old times. The present terraced promenades were rebuilt on their old foundations in the 1900s after the destruction of the previous ones by the Government of Vienna in the mid-19th century. This is one the most beatiful landmarks of Budapest with all the Pest cityscape being visible from this spot on a clear day, a sight that draws both locals and visitors.
The Northern Tower includes a pleasant restaurant, a bar and a wine-shop.

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