The Halászbástya or Fisherman's Bastion is a terrace in neo-Gothic and neo-Romanesque style situated on the Buda bank of the Danube, on the Castle hill in Budapest, around Matthias Church. It was designed and built between 1895 and 1902 on the plans of Frigyes Schulek. Its seven towers represent the seven Magyar tribes that settled in the Carpathian Basin in 896.
The Bastion takes its name from the guild of fishermen which was responsible for defending this stretch of the city walls in the Middle Ages. It is a viewing terrace, with many stairs and walking paths.

your image is very clear and sharp! The PoV is quite good as well as the bastion's architecture. The people seem to enjoy the visit and take pictures of each other. I see professionals with their tripods!!!!
Have a nice weekend,

Pleasurable picture of an interesting architecture. I like the stairs with the arch that gives a sense of depth. Good the green spot at the right that contrasts with the white building.
A good POV and composition,

RItkábban fotózott látószög - de lám innen is milyen szép a Halászbástya. Szépen kiegyensúlyozott kompozíció természetes sínekkel!
Kár hogy nem jöttél.
Grattula és jó fotózást!
