The bridge leads fro Buda to Pest plus to the Margaret Island inbetween. The bridge is convenient to cross by car, on foot, by bicycle, too, plus you can also take the tram. There is a bend in the bridge that makes it unique.

When is a bridge any more than just a bridge? Well this bridge has 2 reasons to be, 1 it's a chevron bridge and 2 it has a spur that takes you to the lovely Margaret Island. So good we walked over it twice!

From this bridge you can enjoy the views of the monuments at the shores of Danube river, especially at night when they are all lit up. Also there is a cycling path which is very advantagous, if you are using the public bikesharing.
