Fisherman's Bastion

In the old times the fishermen were protecting this area, and after them the place received its name. Today this place is known for its beautiful view over the city and the Pest side. It was built, as we see it today, between 1895 and 1902. The towers symbolize the tents of the seven tribeleaders that lead the Hungarians into their nation by the end of the 9th century.

awesome tent-like structure
