    We've been there several times because while visiting the other bridges in the central area of Budapest were closed then necessarily to pass from one side to the other we passed through here. There is nothing particularly relevant artistic viewpoint as seen in the photos that I attach but still offers some inspiration shoot on near Elizabeth Bridge. If you enjoyed this review, you can read about my many other for Budapest and I like clicking on: is it useful? Thanks:)

    This bridge is named for a Hungarian poet and patriot. It doesn't have the character of the Chain Bridge, but does light up nicely at night.  more »

    Not even famous and useful, are riding the trams to further parts of the city. If you pass it you leave it to Margaret Island.
