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.
