15/38.- Budapest, view of Budapest


You can see here two of the most famous bridges in town: the Széchenyi Bridge (at your left, also known as Chain Bridge) and the Erzébet Bridge. The original Erzsébét Bridge was constructed in 1903, and it was the largest single arched bridge in Europe. But the Germans bombed it in 1945. The cable bridge was re-opened in 1964. Its original form was not used due to traffic routing and expense of rebuilding.

On the other side of the river sits Pest, and on this side Buda. Can you see the green dome on the right of the image, That’s the Royal Palace’s dome, and that’s where we’ll go right now. It’s a five minute stroll ...
