Elisabeth Bridge crosses the Danube at its narrowest point in Budapest. Admire the bronze statue of Elizabeth of Bavaria, for whom the bridge is named, in the garden on the Buda side. This side also features Döbrentei Square with two monuments, as well as historical baths nearby. On the other side, visit the March 15 Square, where the oldest church in Pest is located. The bridge offers one of the quickest walking routes between Buda and Pest. Take one of the pedestrian sidewalks next to the road on the bridge and enjoy the views.

  • The most elegant bridge in the Budapest. Light and airy. Beautiful both during the day and at night, thanks to the original lighting. Under one of the bridge ends near the thermal baths of Rudas is a pump room with mineral water. Great place to make photos.
