Chain Bridge, Budapest, Hungary

Post by Matt » Thu Aug 01, 2019 11:42 am

The Széchenyi Chain Bridge is the first permanent bridge that spans across River Danube, connecting Buda and Pest, the western and eastern sides of Budapest.

The ends of the bridge are decorated with lionhead-shaped capstones, which are rumoured to have no tongues. This set tongues of many wagging, but in actual fact, the lion statues do have tongues, they are just not visible from street level.

Getting to Chain Bridge: Take Streetcar/tram 19 to Clark Ádám tér (Buda side) or Streetcar/tram 2 stops at Széchenyi István tér (Pest side)

Really nice place to visit!
