Fishermans Bastion - Review

The Buda Bank on the Danube is prettily dotted with a construction that looks somewhat like a terrace. This place is called the Fisherman’s Bastion. This structure is built close to the Matthias church.

Built and designed between the years 1895 and 1902 by Frigyes Schulek, this Gothic structure is something out of a fairytale. However it was damaged in the Second World War and reconstructed by  János Schulek who also happens to be the original architect’s son.

There are seven towers built in white which look like they’ve been built with the imagination of a fantasy writer. The pretty towers are a reminder of the seven tribes that made the area their home that led to the formation of what we know today as Hungary. This place is not just a great photo opportunity or a great place to view the city. It has several stories associated with it. It makes this space both stunning as well as historic. A definite must visit for any traveler to Budapest.

One of the most enchantingly beautiful structures of Budapest, the Fisherman’s Bastion is a majestically built building decked with 7 separate towers. Because of its famed beauty expect a number of people when you go to buy tickets for Fisherman’s Bastion. It is best to get tickets for Fisherman’s Bastion in advance if you want to skip all the lines.

  • A beautiful place with a great history behind it. This is a must visit when you are in Budapest. It's equally beautiful in the winter or summer. It's a great spot to take some memorable photos from a wonderful city. It's a good stop when you are touring this part of town. Combine it with the church nearby and the castle a bit further down the road.

  • Such a nice and magical place. You feel like you are in a fairytale. You can explore around for few hours. There is a lot of history, you can find food and drinks. There is also a great view on skyline of Pest.

  • surprising architecture. I didn’t get a ticket to go up because it didn’t seem to worth the price. Walking around is perfectly fine. Maybe too much of a touristic spot, but I have to admit it id beautiful.

  • Absolute stunner of a building with a great view from it to boot. An absolute do-not-miss, as it is free to enter. Cafe with views of the city at the top. Bus 16 goes here. There are several other sites at the top. We walked back, which was a winding path with old buildings that later gave way to local residences. It was good to see another neighborhood that was very different from the central downtown district.

  • I did not know the name of this place until I write a review on google map. They called this Fisherman's Bastion. At first glance, it looks like a castle to me. When I step on, I was amazed. There is a stairway going down. Hmmm.... Time to walk and explore what's in here. Alas, finally a cafe to warm you. 5 stars 5 stars!
