Chain Bridge

Recommended
Széchenyi Bridge, or the Chain Bridge, is the oldest in the city. Built between 1839 and 1849 under the aegis of Count István Széchenyi, it is now considered the symbol of the city. Two British engineers, William Thierney Clark and Adam Clark, were entrusted with the project. The fine classical stone and iron structure has a 380m span, is 15.70m wide, and is magnificently lit at night. Two stone lions on pedestals keep proud watch over either end of the bridge.
