This is just one part of a very beautiful area of Budapest that you should explore. Within half a mile you have some of the most beautiful buildings and views you have seen.

This statue comes across as very under rated in the previous reviews. It was one of my favouritees int he city and has some beautiful carved scenes in the marble plinth. Saint Stephen looks very regal looking over Fishermans Bastien.

I did not follow the history of St. Stephen, but this statue will be the first thing you see when you arrive at the top of the hill to visit the Fisherman's Bastion. Roam around it and see it from different angles. Architecture-wise, nothing special.

This is a very beautiful statue of the horse-mounted of St Stephen (Szent Istvan). He was the first king of Hungary (the Magyars) (c 975—1038, and King of Hungary from 1000 to 1038), and the patron saint of Hungary. He is noted for being a...More

Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a

empire and the lives led by the aristocracy at the
time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many
