“Beautiful bridge”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

Majestic during the day and magical by night. Walk across to get an alternative view from the other side.

“Great View on Danube On This Bridge”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

This is not a long bridge, it offers good views of the Danube river and connects you from Buda side to the Pest side. It also lets you off close to the lift which you can take up to Castle Hill. Besides the Huge Lions at both entrances I can't say much more. I was at the Charles Bridge in Prague Days before and there is no comparison. Was in awe of the Charles bridge, this bridge was mainly just... a bridge.

“They cleaned it up and spiced it up”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

It was just getting ready for the holiday season and it was beautiful looking at night. I took one of the boat cruises and it was most excellent. It was also a bit safer to cross. My favorite is the cleaniness and the ornaments, everything has been preserved and spiced up. Nicely done!

“Bridge that adds a bit of flavour to the city”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

Wandering over the bridge to see both sides of the Danube is a pleasant experience, each side is different and should be seen
