Chain Bridge - Budapest

from 16.00

With the St. Stephen's Basillica in the background, this Hungarian capital’s first bridge, now a monument, is a fascinating sight when viewed from high atop the Buda Castle situated on Gellért Hill. 

The bridge was built upon the request of Count István Széchenyi by designer William Tierney Clark and engineer Adam Clark between 1839 and 1849. Like many other Danube bridges, the Chain Bridge did not survive the ravages of the World War II, so it had to be rebuilt in 1949, marking the centenary of its first opening.
