North section of the Fishermens Bastion as photographed from a turret of the south section.

Well-known for the panoramic views it provides of the city of Budapest, the castle-like Fisherman's Bastion was built mainly for decorative purposes. It’s located east of the Matthias Church in the Castle District.

Designed by architect Frigyes Schulek and built in ~1905, the white-stoned Fisherman’s Bastion is described as a combination of neo-Gothic and neo-Romanesque - full of turrets, projections, parapets, and climbing stairways.

The Fisherman’s Bastion is made up of seven towers - each one symbolizing one of the seven Magyar tribes that came to Hungary in 896.

The bastion sits in a neighborhood once known as Fisherman’s Town, thus the name. An old fish market also sat at this location during medieval times.
