“Beware of bicyclists!”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

Chain Bridge connects Buda to Pest and is flanked by stone lions at both ends. We enjoyed the views from the bridge as well as the opportunity to watch river traffic from the span. However, one must remain alert for the ever-present bicyclists who at best might spoil your photo shot, and at worst, run you down!

Reviewed July 19, 2013

Compared to the other bridges nearby, this one really stands out. Beautiful lion statues guarding both entrances. Check it out!

“Nice bridge, nothing more”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

It looks nice, but is busy with speeding cyclists and in essence it is just one way to get from Buda to Pest.
Very nice highlited at night.

“Exemplary !”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

It looks massive and grandiose specially in the evening. It is a Definitive structure of Budapest, being the main bridge that links Buda and Pest.it is the busiest bridge considering the flow of cars and buses passing through.
