  • The bridge is located in the southern part of the city and connects Piazza Boraros (Pest) and Piazza Goldmann Gyorgy (Buda). Was built in 40 of the last century and, unlike so many other beautiful bridges, was built only for functional reasons. Like the other bridges were destroyed during World War II on the occasion of the retreat of the German troops under the pressure of Soviet ones. It was rebuilt after the war and has been renovated several times. It is dedicated to the famous Hungarian poet Sándor Petőfi.

  • This bridge is South of the bridge on the Danube River. It is South of the liberty bridge. It is like now exposed to steel bridges. Wonderful views from the bridge of the Gellért Hill and Hill for the Royal.
