Fisherman's Bastion

Budapest, Hungary
5 / 5
The building is located in the old urban district of Var on Fortress Hill. Until 1905, a fishing market was located at this place. The construction of the bastion was planned to coincide with the celebration of the millennium of the Hungarian state in 1897, but the work was completed only after a few years. The Fisherman's Bastion is an architectural ensemble of white stone with seven towers that symbolize the seven Hungarian tribes.
