Fisherman’s Bastion, Budapest Hungary
The statues of the Árpád dynasty kings at the gate to the Fisherman’s Bastion looking towards one of the impressive towers. After my first trip to Budapest this was one of the photographs I wanted to capture on my next visit, thankfully I got the perfect evening for it on my second night!
About the Fisherman’s Bastion:
The Fisherman’s Bastion in Budapest, Hungary, was built between 1895 and 1902 to a design by Frigyes Schulek, in order to replace the deteriorating Medieval fortifications already there. During the Middle Ages the people living in the fishermen’s town on the Danube brought their haul up to Matthias Church which stands at the top. It was these same fishermen that would take up arms to defend the hill in case of an attack, hence the name ‘Fisherman’s Bastion’.
