The Fisherman's Bastion (or HalÃ¡szbÃ¡stya) is a terrace in the neo-Gothic and neo-Romanesque style located on the Buda bank of the river Danube, on the Castle hill in Budapest. It was designed and built between 1895 and 1902, and was restored after its near destruction during World War II. It is a popular tourist spot, because the Bastion's towers and terrace feature a panoramic view of the Danube, Margaret Island, Pest and the Gellert Hill. 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 that was responsible for defending this stretch of the city walls in the Middle Ages.
This incredibly detailed bead was designed by San Francisco Bay Area artist Shani Yokoyama, then hand carved by a master bead wax carver, and then cast in high quality sterling silver with oxidized accents. Clean only with a silver cleaning cloth, and do not use silver polish dip. Collect all of the Landmark Beads to remember your world travels.
