Fisherman's Bastion

Local nameHalászbástya
LocationBudapest, Serbia

If you had ever wondered where the castle in Disney movies' logo came from, this may well be your answer. This extraordinary viewing terrace is a must-visit for every tourist who enjoys taking pictures, as it offers a unique look at the city, along with the Danube river, below.

Though it may appear medieval, this unique structure, built in neo-Gothic and neo-Romanesque architectural style, is only about 150 years old. Notice how there are exactly 7 small towers: each is meant to symbolize one of the tribes that came to the lands of Hungary in the 9th century AD. There is also a bronze statue of the first Hungarian king, Stephen and a chapel.

If you have the time, come see the Fishermen's Bastion at night. Not only will you avoid the biggest crowds, but you will also have the chance to look at the city lit with lights.
