The Fisherman’s Bastion

Fishermen's Bastion

Fishermen's Bastion

Next to the Matthias Church you can find the Fishermans Bastion. In the old times the fishermen were protecting this area, and after them the place received its name. Today this place is known for its beautiful view over the city and the Pest side. It was built, as we see it today, between 1895 and 1902. The seven towers symbolize the tents of the seven tribeleaders that lead the Hungarians into their nation by the end of the 9th century.

Tip: It is free entrance to the Fishermens Bastion from November to the end of February (sometimes a little bit longer as well).
