My name is Csaba Tamas. I'm a travel guide, and I work for Yellow Zebra, and we're having this tour around the city in Budapest today in Hungary. You can definitely walk the distance between the Royal Palace and the Matthias Church... 10-15 minutes. And wandering in the small Baroque Renaissance designed streets and houses are really interesting sites of that area. The Fisherman's Bastion has seven towers representing the seven tribe leaders who were establishing the Hungarian nation back in the 800s. A really nice replica of a bastion and it's called the Fisherman's Bastion because there were a fish market around the area, not because the people were fishing from the bastion. And the Matthias Church, really nicely covered building with ceramic manufacture... really famous Hungarian ceramic tile of the roof is made in the south part of the country. That's why it has really special colors.
