Fisherman's Bastion

Budapest's history is and full of conflicts and disputes. It has suffered every type of invasion and has been a victim of bombings during WWII. These conflicts have left their mark on their city and today you can still see some of the scars from the damage caused in the past.
Even so, the Hungarians have been rebuilding their city little by little. Today it shines bright. The hill castle, the medieval city in the Buda zone, are especially beautiful. Fisherman's Bastion is one of those places that takes your breath away when you see it in person. It has seven towers that house different museums, where you can look at works of art, among them, Pablo Picasso's. Its strange name comes from a group of people charged with the defense of the city during the Middle Ages.

Budapest from Above

There are many points in Budapest that allow you to take some of the best photographs of the city. From the Bastion of the Fisher and towards the Royal Palace, whatever point is good to take a photo of the Danube, the Parliament, the roofs or simply the daily life of the city. ALso Budapest has something that makes it highly visited, it is very photogenic. It sees to be stopped, quiet, while the visitor presses the button of their camera to immortalize it forever.

Cafe- A vantage point of the Fishermen's Bastion

Halászbástya is a cafe that is located on the left of the Fishermen's Bastion in Buda that has amazing views of the river and the Parliament. Once you climb up, there is a terrace on the walkway between the towers where, in good weather, you can have some snacks or a drink, and normally there is always a band. It is definitely worth the climb for the views.

In my opinion, the second most mesmerizing mandatory stop in Budapest

Excellent

The architecture will put your eyes in awe, and watching the sunrise without all the crowds is just worth every second of getting up at 5am.

Beautiful!

Great

Better to visit during the day. If you enjoy views, this is the place to go. When you get tired there’s a Starbucks at the top. You can go to the top of the bastion walking. No need to pay for any transfer.

I think it's not so necessary

Excellent

The most beautiful place in Budapest. You don't have to pay for entrance but you need to pay for higher towers. I think it's not so necessary

So much history
