"Liberty Bridge (Szabadság híd) & baths . . ." Szabadsag Hid - Liberty Bridge Tip by acemj


The Liberty Bridge opened in 1896 and was originally called the Franz Joseph Bridge after the Habsburg Emperor. Along the top of the bridge's pillars you'll notice iron Turul birds, a symbol in Magyar history.

At the far end of the bridge (Buda side) in this picture, you can see the Gellért Hotel, an Art Nouveau palace which is as famous for its Turkish style thermal baths that are open to the public.

Address: Between Gellert Ter (Buda side) and Fovam Ter (Pest side)
