Fisherman's Bastion, {CATEGORY}

No one seems to know why this is so named - it has certainly never been called on to defend anything. The stories say that in the old days this was where the fishermen defended Castle Hill from. It stands behind Matyas Church, overlooking the river and was built around 1900 by the same person who was responsible for the reconstruction of the church. There is a small fee to pay to climb up it, but it is worth it for the views. It makes for some of the finest photo opportunities in all of Budapest. You can walk down the hill through the park from here, which is worth doing as it means you will arrive at the small flat area immediately above the entrance to the tunnel before continuing your descent.

Fisherman's Bastion, {CATEGORY}

The neo-Romanesque Fisherman's Bastion, behind Matthias Church and the Hilton Hotel has a spectacular panorama of the river and Pest beyond it. Built at the turn of the 20th century, it was included as part of the refurbishing of the church area. Local legend states that this stretch of medieval parapets was a protected area by the fishermen's guild, but the area was once a fish market area, so either could be true. The local city council imposed a fee of 3€ ($3.90/£2) to pass through the turnstile allowing you to climb to the top lookout points. If you happen to be in the area after 6pm, it is no longer manned and you can go up for free. An overpriced cafe is open in the warm months, but don't let the tables intimidate you from going to the railing and looking at the view over the Danube to Pest, you can see (from left to right): Margaret Island and the Margaret Bridge, Parliament, St. Stephen's Basilica, the Chain Bridge with the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and the Gresham Palace behind it, the Vigadó Concert Hall, the Inner City Parish Church, the Erzsébet Bridge, and the Szabadság Bridge. To get here, take the no. 10 bus from Moszkva tér or bus no. 16 from Deák tér, or the funicular from Clark Ádám tér to Castle Hill.
