The area
Neighbourhood: District I / Buda
The historical center to a city with a multifarious and intricate past, Buda has some of the most outstanding buildings in Europe and an enviable natural landscape with stunning views onto the Danube. Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a glimpse into the golden years of the Austro-Hungarian empire and the lives led by the aristocracy at the time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many events attended by the royal family and was the chosen place for the coronation of Franz Josef, one of the Hungarian Habsburg kings. Having admired the palace and the church, a visit to Buda will be unforgettable by the stunning and memorable panorama over Pest offered by the seven towered Fishermen’s Bastion.

Located close to Matthias Church and Fisherman's Bastion is a Trinity Square .
The square is obviously in a great position to admire the amazing architecture that forms the square but the centrepiece of the square is most definitely the plaque column which was erected first in 1706 and a bigger column erected in 1709 to ward off further outbreaks of the plaque,this is probably one of the most photographed sites on the square that even with the renovation work taking place is still very popular ,if you're planning a holiday to Budapest it's a square to most definitely check out .

The only thing outstanding about this square is the buildings in close proximity to it. The Matthias church, Fisherman's Bastion, St Stephens statue.
There is some restorations taking place in the area as well.
You'll have to see it if you visit the Buda Hill as it has those iconic buildings near it.

This is the open area in front of St Matthias Church. Unfortunately it is marred right now by the restoration that is taking place on some of the buildings surrounding this square.

This square is nothing but a sidekick to the nearby Matthias church and Fishermen's Bastion.
There's a decent looking column at its center.

Located up near the Buda Castle on a big hill overlooking the Danube River, there are great views of the Chain Bridge and the Pest side of Budapest from the Fishermans Bastion right on the edge of this square. You'll also find a large statue of St. Stephen on his horse, and Matthias Church with its brightly tiled roof.

There is something about the way the square is situated that feels both majestic and comfortable at the same time.

Situated in Trinity Square in front of the Matthias Church. It was named after the Guild of Fishermen that once defended Buda's Medieval Riverbank. The Dramatic views from this platform have made it one of Budapest's most visited attractions. Fisherman's Bastion is one of the best known monuments in Budapest located in the Bude Castle, in the 1st District of Budapest. The Bastion was built as a viewing terrace with lookout Towers on the Base of a stretch of the Castle walls, built after the Budha Castle siege. The Bastion was built between 1895 - 1902. The architectural style was inspired in the Neo - Romanesque and built by Frigyes Schulek who also restored and resigned the Matthias Church. The architecture of the Bastion and that used in the restoration of the church Neo- Gothic are intertwined. If one looks at the two styles with the Bastion's T shape it embraces the church and enhances it's beauty. The Bastion was damaged in the WW11 but was restored. If you look at the walls of the Bastion the walls look quite new. The terrace being a beautiful platform with magnificent Panoramic views of the majestic city below.They say the walls were protected by the Guild of Fishermen. They lived under the walls in the so called Fishtown or Waterfowl between the River Danube and the Castle walls. The St Michael's Chapel in the Bastion opened in March 2013. You can visit the Chapel for a small entrance fee. View the elevated statute in Trinity Sq. of King St Stephen facing the church of Matthias. All the elements of the Fisherman's Bastion with its statues, stairs,ramparts, cloisters, harmonise with the Matthias Church. Don't forget to take your photographs from the terrace. Be patient as the terrace can be a very busy attraction and you may have to be patient to get the great shot you may wish. There is an entrance to the wall and an exit at the other end. This is a must tourist visit, along with the Matthias Church (entrance fee) along with the Budha Castle, BudaTower, Military museum which are all within walking distance.

The main square in the medieval town, here is the church of St. Matias. The look and architecture of the surrounding buildings is magnificent.
