This is a 'must see' place in Budapest. Fantastic statues, gates and memorials from different ages. Beautiful art.

This area is beautiful. It's a must see in Budapest. Just across from the statue is the place. The guards change every hour, and it's fantastic to see them parading through the historic square. Try catch this if you can.

I usually go with my wife, we simply walk up here. Amazing view we get to the city. Its free but major tourist times they charge you to walk up the stairs to see the city. Not very expensive. Since its a major tourist area just be a little careful, prices can be way higher than average.

Yet another stunning statue within the fishermans bastion area - a walk around the area will bring you to this very impressive statue.

This statue celebrates the person who unified Hungary and was the first christian king of Hungary. It is a relatively simple statue that sits atop a reasonably ornate base and shows St Stephen in a regal pose as a king. The statue sits between the Fisherman's Bastion and Matthias Church.

This regal-looking statue blends in so well with its surroundings. The base on which the statue sits consists of some very intricate workmanship! Probably get a better view of this statue from the upper terrace.

We came across this statue whilst visiting the Fisherman's Bastion and found it to be very fascinating. It has a lot of detail and really captures St Stephen well.

It´s an amazing place to visit and the sights you can see are so beautifull, because it´s in Buda which is the high part of the city.

The statue of King Stephen , probably the greatest king of Hungary stands besides the Mathias church and the Bastion , and close to the Royal Castle , home of the Hungarian monarchy . It is a niece piece of art fitting perfectly in an important historical area .

Staying in District I / Buda

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
