Liberty Bridge is the third and shortest bridge of Budapest. It was built for the Millennium World Exhibition in 1896, its original name being Francis Joseph Bridge.
As Liberty Bridge is the shortest bridge in Budapest, you can easily walk across it over the Danube in a couple of minutes.
Having reached the Buda end of the bridge, you get to Gellért Square at the foot of Gellért Hill, hosting Hotel Gellért famous for its thermal water. At the right side of the Hotel, you can find the Cave Church with the statue of Stephen I before it. From here, the top of Gellért Hill with the Citadella and the Liberty Statue, standing proudly over Budapest, are only a 15-20 minutes' comfortable walk.

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
