  Chain Bridge from Buda to Pest
by DrewV

Any trip to Budapest involves several key must-do's, most of which I didn't do. It's a long and fairly sordid tale of woe, which I won't get into. Anyway, one big must-do is to explore the two sides of the river. Since you'll most likely be staying in Pest, you might start there, seeing sights like St. Stephen's Basilica (which you can see here). On the other hand, the story of the city really starts in Buda, so maybe you should start there. Regardless, you'll be crossing bridges somewhere.

May I suggest that the best way to cross the river is the Chain Bridge (also seen here), the first bridge built across the Danube in this neck of the woods.
