Beautifully constructed, the Szechenyi Chain Bridge is full of history and story. Attractive looking and also provides some glorious views overlooking the whole city.

Incredible architecture. Very interesting to get a guide to explain its significance. We went on a bike tour and rode across it... slightly terrifying but very fun. Pedestrians can walk on either side and underneath it. Worth the walk across. If you do nothing else, you MUST go see this Bridge.

This is a first for me- I’ve reviewed restaurants, sights of interest, buildings, shows. Now a bridge
Well it’s a good looking bridge, probably approved by competent architects, it has cables and steel and it has well tested stress capabilities. Frankly I wouldn’t be that keen to put my name on it - but what the hell

First bridge to link Buda with Pest. Beautiful bridge to look at and take photos of. Something you will see whilst you are here visiting other places of interest.
