Chaining Buda and Pest


One of the main sights in Budapest is this, the Chain Bridge lit at night. The suspension bridge from 1849 was the first permanent bridge to span the River Danube in Budapest and its official name is Széchenyi Lánchíd after one of its main backers, István Széchenyi. Tomorrow I'll show you another photo of this beautiful bridge from the Castle Hill on the Buda side.
