Chain Bridge -Szecheny Lanchid, Budapest: 105 reviews and 215 photos
The Chain bridge was the first permanent bridge to be built across the Danube in Budapest, and is a suspension bridge, as suggested by it's name. Named after Count István Széchenyi, who supported it's construction between 1839 and 1849, it was designed by a Scottish engineer, William Tierney Clark, and built under the supervision of an English one.
In 1989 people demonstrated on the chain bridge for freedom and independence, and it has since then become a symbol of liberty to the Hungarian people.
