Things to Do and See Around Fishermen’s Bastion
Fishermen's Bastion (Halászbástya) is only 100 years old, and is a favorite lookout. In medieval times, the fish market was nearby and the bastion was built to commemorate the fishermen who protected this part of the city. The seven tent-like turrets symbolize the seven Hungarian tribes that arrived to the Carpathian Basin in 896.
Insider Tip: There is a fee to enter the lookout at the top level of Fishermen's Bastion, however you can enter the lower level lookout for free and the view is equally beautiful.
