Budapest’s Bridges 1

Budapest has 12 road bridges and 2 railway bridges which connect the two sides of Buda and Pest or connect an Island located between the two sides.

Budapest’s bridges features the city’s view even more than the specular buildings around.

Megyeri Bridge
This bridge is a modernisation of the country which is 1862 meter long and the second longest bridge of Hungary. Megyeri bridge was submitted in 2008 and it has its' own biking and hiking paths on the two sides. The construction was only 2,5 years long which seems as little as big the bridge is.

North Railway Connecting Bridge
This is one of Budapest’s railway Danube-bridges which beside the fact that provides way to Budapest-Esztergom railway also allows the hiking and biking traffic to use it as they have their own path. In 2008 the bridge was completely renovated. 

Árpád Bridge

This is Budapest’s longest bridge that connects the III. and the XIII. districts. This is the busiest one from all as it is being crossed by 150.000 cars daily. Halfway over the bridge you can go down to the Margaret-Island to walk around a little.

Margaret Bridge
This is Budapest’s second permanent bridge which was built between 1872-1876. It was submitted in 1876. The next big reconstruction was in 2009 and was submitted again in 2011. Margaret-Island is the popular bridge where you can easily walk down to the Margaret-Island. The most busiest trams nr. 4-6 cross the bridge daily to take the passengers to the center of the city.

Széchenyi Chain Bridge
This is one of the the capital’s main monuments and the first permanent bridge which was built between 1839-1849. Unfortunately because of the World War this bridge was also destroyed to such extent it had to be rebuilt on its 100 year anniversary. On Buda side the bridge ends by the Clark Adam’s square where the tunnel is standing. You can reach the top of the tunnel easily and see the panoramic view of the Pest side, the busy Danube and at night or in its' breathtaking sunshine.
