When visiting a place called Castle Hill in Budapest, you would expect to be in the presence of the homes of past royalty. Just down the hill from the castle relics, you will find a fascinating area known as Fisherman’s Bastion. There is a lot of confusion as to the reason for the name. As far as anyone knows, there were no battles fought here. The reasonable explanation for the name is the legend that the fisherman actually defended Castle Hill from this vantage point. This interesting Budapest attraction was built by the same people that reconstructed the Matyas Church.
You may be wondering what you would do at the Fisherman’s Bastion. The truth is this one of the most beautiful scenic places in all of Europe. The pictures of scenery and photos of people with the bastion as a backdrop are sure to be the best pictures you ever take in your entire life.
