Great views and worth a visit to see the locals dodge the tourists on their journey home at rush hour

“Very Neat Bridge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

More than likely you will drive or walk across the Chain Bridge if you are sight seeing in Budapest. It connects Buda and Pest. This bridge is lovely and it's offers a lovely view of Buda and Pest and the Danube.

“Good engineering, and beutiful bridge.-”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

This is a subjective review as I like very much engineering works.- Perhaps for other people doesn't have the importance that have for me.- I think that an engineering work, is it is well built, and proper proportions must be considered an art masterwork, and this bridge certainly is.-

“Interesting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Although the chain bridge is interesting in its history and also quite nice to look at, it's pretty much just a bridge. I think it looks nicer from a distance. I prefer the bridges that run parallel to it, because then you have a nice view of the chain bridge as you cross. You can't see it when you're on it!

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Its a beautiful bridge connecting Buda and Pest and the views are truly amazing! But its also just a bridge. To be honest, I am not sure how you would miss seeing this during your time in Budapest whether you tried or not.
