Budapest - Liberty Bridge

Budapest - Liberty Bridge

The Liberty Bridge connects Buda and Pest across the River Danube in Budapest. It is the third southernmost public road bridge in Budapest, located at the southern end of the city center. Although radically different in structure, the bridge imitates the general outline of a chain-type bridge, which was considered an aesthetically preferable form at the time of construction. The bridge was opened in the presence of Emperor Franz Joseph; the last silver rivet on the Pest abutment was inserted into the iron structure by the Emperor himself, and the bridge was originally named after him.
