0 Budapest: Connecting Two Cities by Bridge

The Chain Bridge, completed in 1849, was the first permanent bridge to span the Danube, connecting Buda and Pest. 

Parliament from the Chain Bridge.  You can tell how windy it was by the water!

A couple of views of the Chain Bridge from our walk up Castle Hill.

The Elisabeth Bridge, the version which currently stands having been built in the early 1960s after the original bridge was blown up by the retreating Nazis.

The Liberty Bridge, built in the mid-1890s.
