Bridges in Budapest
Budapest is a cozy and beautiful capital of bridges. To see them in all their glory, arrange a fascinating tour.
You can start with the Széchenyi Chain Bridge, the very first one that connected Buda and Pest. In the evening, with illumination, this landmark of Budapest looks especially impressive.
Another bridge – Elizabeth – was built at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. By design, it is a chain and at night it also shines spectacularly. On holidays, by the way, it is lit up in the colors of the national flag.
But the most unusual bridge in Budapest is Margate, the second oldest bridge in the city. It consists of three flights: two of them converge over the cape of the island of the same name at an angle of 150 degrees, and the third leads directly to the island, making it accessible for walking.
