Budapest is one of the best places I've visited in Europe. There are just 5-6 other that I've done yet, however this was truly a classic affair. Chain Bridge is beautiful in its own way.

I first saw this from the river bank at night when it was lit up. It looked beautiful. Then we crossed it several time during the red bus tour crossing from Buda to Pest.

Good to visit at day time, but especially at night time because there a lot of lights, the bridge connects Buda with pesta. You should take a walk here, it takes no more than 5 minutes.

We walked this bridge twice and enjoyed the views, the large stone lions, the intricate metal work below the roads, and the warm feeling from everyone walking along.
