The Chain Bridge, a twin-towered span is the oldest and perhaps the most beautiful chain bridge over the river Danube. It is named after István Széchenyi. He was the initiator of the project to build a bridge. It was opened in 1849. The Széchenyi Chain Bridge was distinctive for two reasons. Firstly, it was the first permanent dry link between Buda and Pest. Secondly, the upper class noblemen previously were excused from all taxation. But presently they have to pay the toll. According to local people there’s an anecdote, that during bad weather you can push the bridge into the tunnel. At the newly constructed stage of the chain bridge over the river Danube, everybody had to pay the toll for crossing the bridge. Even the VIP’s too had to pay. The toll was then lifted in 1918. On both the sides there are 2 lions carved decorating the structures. They were sculptured by sculptor Marschalko János. According to an anecdote Marschalko killed himself by jumping of the bridge. He killed himself because a boy made a remark that the lions do not have tongues. But in reality lions do have tongues.

Envision the mixture in sustenance, construction modeling and history that runs with each of these dialects and societies.

Despite the Danube River, Budapest wouldn't have its worshiped strategy of structures, including the Széchenyi Chain Bridge, misrepresented by lions, and the Liberty Bridge, improved by turuls (Hungary's astonishing winged animals).

It proceeds with SE through Upper and Lower Austria, past Linz and Vienna. It then structures the outskirt in the middle of Slovakia and Hungary from Bratislava to Szob. At Szob, the amazing Danube River turns south and streams over the Great Alföld (plain) of focal Hungary, past Budapest. In the wake of shaping the northern 66% of the Croatia-Serbia outskirt, it enters Serbia above Belgrade, turns southeast, then east, and courses through limited crevasses, framing a piece of the Serbia-Romania fringe. The Iron Gate canyon, site of a hydroelectric dam, is there; the Ship Canal detours rapids in the chasm. In the wake of passing the Iron Gate, the Danube River increases again and shapes the vast majority of the Romania-Bulgaria fringe before swinging north close Silistra and going through E Romania to Galaţi, where it isolates into a far-reaching (c.1,000 sq. mi/2,590 sq. km) delta before entering the Black Sea.

The disintegration of the Soviet alliance and Hungary's move far from communism brought Budapest new open doors for flourishing and a flood of Western voyagers—alongside the anxieties of a monetary move to a more Western-style economy. Zone city, 203 square miles (525 square km). Pop. (2005 est.) 1,697,343. Everything in this city is amazing and no one should miss those amazing attractions.
