As part of my Europe trip, I visited Budapest (after Vienna). Because of my flight times, I ended up only really having one day in Budapest (I arrived late the first night, then had one full day and then left around 11am the following day).

I spent most of the day at Fisherman’s Bastion. I was just so amazed by the beauty of it all, I didn’t want to leave!

Fisherman’s Bastion is described as a terrace in neo-Gothic style with seven towers, built in the late 1800s. From the terrace, you can admire the stunning panoramic views of the city. As well as look down at the many walking paths and stairs that surround the terrace/towers.

Around Fisherman’s Bastion, there are quite a few cafés/restaurants…that are overpriced as it’s a big tourist spot. I would recommend rather walking back in the direction of the city centre and eating around there if you’re on a budget. Which is what I chose to do as I try to avoid paying unnecessarily high tourist prices whenever possible!

I found a lovely traditional Hungarian restaurant in the city and dined ‘al fresco’! I ordered the pork tenderloin medallions with a sour cream paprika sauce, served with Hungarian-style dumplings…delicious!
