The area known as the Fishermen's Bastion is a magnificent part of Buda. This area in the Castle district is just one many must see sights, within easy walking distance of the Castle, and in a rstricted traffic area which makes it a perfect place for pedestrian tourists.

If you are staying in Buda then go early to avoid the crowds...the views of Pest are breathtaking. Take binoculars and a camera. Not sure if there are toilets but plenty of quality restaurants locally and apparently Harry Houdini is a local so his museum is just yards away. Spacious square great area but cobbled stone so wheelchair access restricted... More

Once you are at the Fisherman's bastion, you can clearly see this statue of St. Stephen. Nice place to take some pictures of both the sides: On one side you have the statue with the back drop of Fisherman's Bastion & on other side you have the nice Mathiaas Church!

Although undergoing some restorative work when we visited the Fisherman's Bastion within which the monument stands, it still provided us with some great photo opportunities.

That entire area is a must-see location. There's no point in paying for entry on the right side at the wall when you get the same view on the left for free.

Everywhere you walk around Castle Hill there are statues, memorials, and history. This statue is just another beautiful one.

Staying in District I / Buda

Neighbourhood Profile
District I / Buda
The historical center to a city with a multifarious and intricate past, Buda has some of the most outstanding buildings in Europe and an enviable natural landscape with stunning views onto the Danube. Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a glimpse into the golden years of the Austro-Hungarian empire and the lives led by the aristocracy at the time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many events attended by the royal family and was the chosen place for the coronation of Franz Josef, one of the Hungarian Habsburg kings. Having admired the palace and the church, a visit to Buda will be unforgettable by the stunning and memorable panorama over Pest offered by the seven towered Fishermen’s Bastion.
