This bridge is simply fascinating. The architect was a Scottish guy and he gave Danube a jewel made of chains. Our favorite parts were the stone lions on the bridge!

The Chain Bridge has been featured in several movies. It's a majestic icon with the stone lions at the end and a designer marvel. A great picture spot.

The chain bridge is at the center of the cities. Close to train and tram connections. Incredible history behind it.

You can walk to and over it or even ride a boat under it. It is nice in the evening when it is illuminated.

This is a substantial bridge and it makes a good landmark during walking tours of the city. The lions at each end are striking. The constant traffic pouring over the bridge less so. Its lit up at night too.

I crossed this bridge several times, and each time I found something new. The mix of stone and iron is complimentary, but what is the best aspect is all the quirks, added extras in odd places that make it different. I didn't notice these at...More
