What a beautiful place! We went here with a little kind of hop on hop of bus, which was very convienient (especially for my 84 year old mother). The buildings itself are very beautiful and the sights are magnificent.

I have been here in both summer and winter. Both times of year are spectacular. Easy to get to - walking or bus. Great architecture with great views of the city at both day and night!

The Fisherman’s Bastion is a very nice place to visit. The scenery is truly breathtaking, and we spent there a hour and a half. Surely, a place to visit when in Budapest.
