"As part of the renovation works of the district hosting the Royal Palace in Budapest, Fishermen's Bastion was built in 1905. There are two explanations about the origin of the name bastion. Some people say that a fish market is nearby here in the Middle Ages and pulling and name bastion. Another explanation is based on the assumption that fishermen guilds defended this part of the castle wall in Budapest. Despite being called a bastion is actually building is a terrace where the view is amazing."
The Halászbástya or Fisherman's Bastion is a terrace in neo-Gothic and neo-Romanesque style situated on the Buda bank of the Danube, on the Castle hill in Budapest, around Matthias Church. It was designed and built between 1895 and 1902 on the plans of Frigyes Schulek. Between 1947–48, the son of Frigyes Schulek, János Schulek, conducted the other restoration project after its near destruction during World War II.
