“You have to cross the Danube”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

It is a must to cross the Danube on this bridge. The views are fantastic on both the Buda and Pest sides and the bridge itself looks magnificent!

“Picturesque”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Good photos from it during the day and of it at night. Liked the stone lions at the end! Be sure to use the underpass to get from one side to the other, as the road across is busy.

“A Landmark”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

This is probably one of the most photographed sites in Budapest. It was the oldest bridge and has been restored to its former glory. Don't miss it at night when it's lit up beautifully.

“Good views...........especially at night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Not sure which is my favourite bridge in Budapest, probably a toss-up between this one and Liberty Bridge. Interesting design and an amazing feat of engineering when you consider the span across the Danube. Some fantastic views of both Buda and Pest, especially at night when the city is fully illuminated.

“My favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

Since i'm an architect, it's really nice to see the structure of the bridge, as a history freak, it's nice to admire the connector between buda and pest, and the view is just amazing!
