Budapest Hungary

Fishermen’s Bastion is a fairy-tale-like viewing platform on Castle Hill built in 1905. Named after a guild of fishermen that protected the city during medieval times, it has seven towers, representing the seven Magyar tribes that settled in Hungary in 9th century AD.

The view of the parliament is undoubtedly the center of attention.  Most part of the terraces is free of charge but a fee is required for entrance into the towers to allow a slightly higher view.  There’s also a cafe if you would like to enjoy a drink over the view.
