How I love Budapest. Both sides of the river, the Buda and the Pest, equally. At night, there is something especially lovely about the Buda side and a visit to the enchanting interior of the Matthias Church is a requirement, as well as time to soak up the view from the beautiful Fisherman's Bastion (pictured here).
Any visit to this area of Budapest is not complete, until you soak up the dessert and coffee atmosphere of the epic, nearby Ruszworm Cafe. Trust me.

Fisherman's bastion - Budapest
Fisherman's bastion is located on top of the hill. The unique architecture and the colorful rooftop caught a lot of attention. It is also a great photo spot to take photos of the Pest side, since it's located at a high point at the Buda side. Cafes are along the building, where you can enjoy a cup of coffee, looking at the river Danube and listen to the "Blue Danube".
Many visitors walk along the Fishermen's Bastion and happily walk down the marble steps. The bastion serves as a viewing terrace with spectacular views of the Danube. Numerous professional and hobby photographers come here to take stunning photos of the Parliament and the historic buildings of the flat Pest side. The Hungarian Parliament looks amazing from the Fishermen's Bastion.
