The Chain Bridge is the oldest and most spectacular bridge connecting Budapest, and it is also a symbol of Budapest.
There are nine bridges across the Danube, connecting the banks of Buda and Pest. One of the oldest and most famous is the Chain Bridge, which is almost the city landmark of Budapest. The design of the two piers in the middle of the bridge is similar to that of many European cities, and has a clear sense of four-layer reality. However, the four lions at both ends of the bridge are quite cute. They are said to represent that Buda and Pest are closely connected and never separated.
One of the most iconic structures in Budapest, the Chain Bridge is a 3-minute walk from our place. Originally completed in 1849, this was the first permanent bridge between Pest and Buda, then two separate cities. Nowadays it's a popular way to reach the Castle District from the hustle and bustle of the Pest side.
Historic bridge linking the two sides of the city. Amazing views of the Danube and some of the most prominent landmarks.
Great place for a morning stroll. I recommend walking to this bridge after visiting the Parliament.
