Historical Architecture
Pack your camera for a trip to Budapest’s Fisherman’s Bastion, reputed to offer the best views in this historic city. Built in 1902, the massive neo-Gothic, neo-Romanesque structure sits atop Castle Hill in a location adjacent to Matthias Church. Filled with winding staircases, parapets, turrets and white stone projections, on a clear day, the Bastion offers unrivaled views of Margaret Island, Saint Stephen’s Basilica and Parliament. Seven towers that symbolize the seven historic tribes of Hungary offer the best photography angles; you can enter them for a small fee. Entrance to the rest of the Bastion terrace is free of charge.

Historical Architecture
From almost any vantage along the Danube riverfront this enormous edifice commands your attention; it was built to. Construction for this opulent material expression of Hungarian sovereignty began in 1885. The 268 meter-long Gothic building is constructed of more than 40 million bricks, 500,000 precious stones and nearly 90 pounds of gold. You can tour this magnificent structure when the House is not in session. While the multi-lingual tours are fairly comprehensive, don’t expect to see it all; there are 691 rooms and about 12 and a half miles of corridors within this seat of the National Assembly of Hungary.

Bridge
The Chain Bridge was the very first bridge in the city to link Buda and Pest. Completed in 1849, this beautiful piece of architecture is a vital part of Budapest's history. At night, it is the perfect place to take in a panoramic view of the lit-up city.This spectacular bridge has an equally spectacular history. It's a great place from which to take in a panorama of the city (which becomes even more impressive at night). This was the very first bridge to link the two cities of Buda and Pest. The project was started in 1839 by designer William Tierney Clark and engineer Adam Clark, and it was completed in 1849. The bridge celebrated its 150th birthday recently with a huge open-air festival.

Church
A brutal siege led to the collapse of the Matthias Church in 1686, when cannonfire took out the church’s walls and revealed an old Madonna statue. According to the story, the sculpture appeared before the Muslims, lowering their morale and leading to the surrender of the city to the Holy League. Visiting tourists, however, have little to fret, as the Romanesque-style church was restored and rebuilt several times over. The church, located in the heart of Budapest’s Buda Castle District, is the seventh largest church of the medieval Hungarian Kingdom.
