This bridge is so beautiful!! When it's lit at night, it's breathtaking. It's a lovely walk in both directions.

The bridge is one mighty structure. Prevented from crossing it on one of the days but well worth it as during the festival of St Stephens the bridge is the focal point of the firework display with fireworks cascading from the bridge looked fantastic.

Very safe to walk across as you are segregated from the traffic. Very grand structure, solid and a monument to engineers of the past. Loving couples today go to the bridge to declare their undying love for each other and leave an engraved padlock attached to the structure. Good to see it from a boat on the river and to walk across.

This is one of my favorite bridges ever. If you're in Budapest, you have to walk across it at least once and make sure to take a ton of pictures of it at night when it's all lit up!
