When we got to the Fisherman’s Bastion, it was full of people and bustling with activity. The view is amazing, especially on a nice, clear day. You can see the Budapest skyline for miles and you can see the flow of the Danube as far as your eyes allow. It’s fantastic.
Next to the Fisherman’s Bastion is Matthias church. Unfortunately during the time when we were there, the church was undergoing renovations. So the exterior of the church was blocked off with plenty of scaffolding obstructing the view. Regardless, you could still imagine the beauty of the church. For a small fee you can enter the church and take pictures. The day was so nice that we decided to admire the beauty from the outside. From the outside you can also admire the statue of the Holy Trinity.
The first time we went to the Castle District it was cold and rainy.
After lunch we walked around the castle and admired the views. We passed the impressive statue of Eugene Savoy and enjoyed the beautiful flowers that surround the Palace. We walked completely around the Palace and enjoyed the shops on the back side. Then we headed back to the Pest side and enjoyed the streets and stairs that are abundant on this side of the city. After all the walking we decided to go back to the hotel, get some much needed rest.
