Beautiful bridge overlooking the river. You can even sit up on the bridge & watch the sunset at night.

One of the landmarks of the city. You have to visit the bridge when you in Budapest. It's one of the significant part of the history.

One of several bridges across the Danube River taking people to and from Buda and Pest. There is the Chain Bridge (this one), the Elizabeth Bridge and the Liberty Bridge. All different and all beautiful in their own designs. If you enjoy exploring bridges, this...More

Yes I have seen locks.
