This bridge is between Buda & Pest and very popular especially at sunset. On our first night we took a stroll across the bridge it was very crowded. We walked toward Elisabeth Park (small but cozy) and flew our DJI Spark drone with fantastic capture capture of the city at night and especially that particular night, there was super blood moon hung over the city that makes it more special.

Just stunning in daylight or lit up in the evening. We walked across from Pest to Buda during the day and went under it in the evening lit up to perfection. We love Budapest.

Typical tourist bridge to walk over and nice views of Budapest and Danube from it. It has attractions close to both sides.

We walked across the bridge hoping for a sunset but the clouds would not cooperate.
It was still a beautiful evening walking across the river, looking back at the city center on one side and the palace on the other.
Buda and Pest are beautiful cities.

Nice bridge. Easy to walk across. Keep an eye out for the 4 lions (2 on each side of the bridge) they're missing their tounges. Visit to find out what happened.
