  Chain Bridge at Night
by SmileyLeSa

The Chain Bridge was the very first bridge to link the two cities of Buda and Pest. The bridge began construction in in 1842 and completed in 1849. The bridge today is a symbol of Hungarian liberty, primarily due to a demonstration in 1989 for freedom and independence.

The Bridge stretches over the Danube River at 375 meters long and 16 meters wide. At night the bridge is illuminated by thousands of great white lights.

Address: Széchenyi Ter (Pest) to Clark Adam Ter (Buda)
