But once it's purpose is explained, this tribute to a brave leader gains a lot of significance and gravitas. It exudes peace and calm, and invites people to cross over the bridge and spend time with the hero on the bridge.

Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area.
