The chain bridge is a suspension bridge. It crosses over the Danube river and connects Buda and Pest. The bridge was opened in 1849 but was damaged during WWII and was rebuilt.

I found the bridge interesting especially the Lions guarding the entrances to the bridge. It looked beautiful in the daytime but even more spectacular lit up at night.

Address: Above the Danube
Directions: Just follow the Danube. You'll surely find them. :-) From North to South: Northern Railway Connector, Arpad, Margharet, Szechenyi Chain, Elisabeth, Liberty, Petofi, Lagymanyosi, S Railway Connector

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
