Posted by Mia Balogh · Jul 5, 2016

Budapest is one of the most amazing cities of the world, and now the Chain Bridge - one of the capital city’s most extraordinary bridges - is praised, too.

Some bridges have historic importance, others are useful and busy nowadays, as well, and there are some really beautiful, fascinating and wonderful ones, too. Some of the last category can be found on’s list, and one of the most beautiful bridges is – what a pleasant surprise – the Chain Bridge in Budapest!

This is how the article describes the Chain Bridge: “Gracefully crossing the Danube, Chain Bridge’s cast iron design was the first to connect Buda (on the west bank) and Pest (on the east) before their unification in 1873. Once a marvel of modern engineering, the bridge has had quite the storied history. Nearly 100-years into its existence, it was blown up by German soldiers during the Siege of Budapest, at the end of WWII. Since the event left nothing to the site but the towers, it had to be entirely rebuilt (a process that was completed in 1949).”
