Beautiful Budapest and the Fisherman's Bastion


Marilyn JonesWhen taking the Viking River Cruises “Passages to Eastern Europe,” passengers first spend two nights in a hotel while exploring Budapest, Hungary, and before boarding the ship. After three flights and a long shuttle ride, I was thrilled to arrive at Hilton Budapest, and even more thrilled to look out my hotel room window and see the Fisherman’s Bastion in the foreground and the Danube River and Parliament in the distance.


The bastion was built from 1895 to 1902 to provide the best panoramic views in Budapest.

There are seven turrets representing the seven Hungarian tribes who founded the present day country in 895, a café on the terrace and a chapel inside.
