  • 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.

  • It's not built to beautify the city. Only serves to improve the traffic between the sides. I passed under it.

  • 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:)
