The Chain Bridge’s construction started in 1839. It was designed by the English engineer, T.W. Clark. It took ten years to build the bridge. The Chain Bridge was the first bridge to connect the city of buda and Pest over the river Danube. So, the Capital City was named as Budapest. This is a strange suspension bridge, as cables have not been used. A huge chain was used to span the river. The chain used on the bridge has links. The links are very similar to the ones that are seen on a bicycle chain. The chain suspends the road way. A statue of the first christian king St. Stephen of Hungary has been carved between the Matthias Church and Fisherman's Bastion. St. Stephen is mounted on a horse, atop an flamboyant podium bejeweled with reliefs. The bridges are widely famous in Budapest. They are famous not just because of their structures but also as historical monuments. The bridges in Budapest are made for the crossing over the River Danube. Danube is one of the most well known rivers of the world.

The Chain Bridge also known as Széchenyi lánchíd. It was the first permanent bridge across the river Danube in Budapest. It was built by István Széchenyi. He is the very remarkable figure in Hungarian history. William Tierney Clark, the English engineer designed the bridge. William Clark, the engineer built earlier one bridge across the River Thames in Marlow, England known as Marlow Bridge, it was basically the larger scale version of that. It was in the year 1820 when István Széchenyi declared to himself that he would build the bridge. He made this decision after knowing that his father died in Vienna. His father died in cold December, and only was to travel was through pontoon bridge across the river Danube. Pontoon bridge was put out of use by ice-floes. Széchenyi got stuck in the Pest riverbank for few days before he could reach Vienna. The Chain Bridge directs to Roosevelt Square on the Pest side of the river Danube. It has the statue of István Széchenyi in its center. It also has one of the ancient acacia tree believed to be the oldest tree in Budapest.

The Széchenyi Chain Bridge is known as bridge of the Hungarian capital. The headquarters of the International Danube Commission is located in Budapest. The The Széchenyi Chain Bridge is the oldest and best-known amongst the eight bridges of the capital. Spanning the Danube between Adam Clark (Buda side) and István Széchenyi (Pest side) the River Danube spans between them. Buda and Pest connected The Széchenyi Chain Bridge, permanently for the first time. A support link on the river has been there, since the middle ages which enabled way from spring to autumn. The river froze during the winter time, which helped and made crossing possible. People used to get stuck on one side, during the abrupt weather change. In 1820, this once happened to István Széchenyi as well, when he had to wait for a week to reach to his father's funeral. This experience made him think and he decided that a permanent bridge had to be built. The project was advocated by him and he then founded a society to finance and led to build The Széchenyi Chain Bridge.

The Széchenyi Chain Bridge was outlined by the English engineer William Tierney Clark. It was the first perpetual stone scaffold over the stream Danube in Hungary. It was introduced on twentieth November 1849. The Gresham Palace and the Hungarian Academy of Sciences appends it. It is likewise tied down on the Pest side of the stream to Széchenyi (once in the past Roosevelt) Square. Adam Clark Square is at the Buda side of the waterway. Adam Clark Square is close to the Zero Kilometer Stone and the lower end of the Castle Hill Funicular. At that point it prompts Buda Castle. The Széchenyi Chain Bridge was interesting for two reasons. To begin with, it was the first changeless connection in the middle of Buda and Pest. Second, the upper cast were previously excused from all taxation but had to pay the toll. The Széchenyi Chain Bridge over the River Danube is delightful both at day and night. You can walk across very safely. Traffic will also not interrupt. It is amazing at night to view from window. 400 m long Széchenyi Chain Bridge lets you inspire for a round walk which is also a goal in itself.

Mostly on weekends, festivals are held on the bridge in the summer. The Buda-end of the bridge leads to Adam Clark Square. There the Funicular takes to the Castle Hill. The Pest-end of the bridge leads to István Széchenyi Square. It is the busiest square in the city center. It is named after the former U.S. president. Attractions are thriving in the immediate district of the Széchenyi Chain Bridge, such as: - Castle Bazaar & Royal Gardens. The north of Adam Clark Square area includes a series of arcades, gardens, stairs and statues. It was built in the second part of the 19th century. This is according to the designs of Miklós Ybl architect. As observed it was neglected in the past decades. But due to being the renowned place significant renovation took place. And the original beauty is being depicted in the same way now. In 1918, an important change took place in the Széchenyi Chain Bridge. Bridge’s money was gone away completely. At night, The Chain Bridge and the Parliament’s glittering illumination mixes with other lights of the city and reflects spectacularly on the dark surface of the river Danube.

This is an astounding snap showing the lovely perspective of the Chain Bridge and River from the Buda Castle. The Chain Bridge was the first changeless stone-scaffold uniting Pest and Buda, and just the perpetual second intersection overall length of the stream Danube. It is one of the typical structures of Budapest, the most broadly known extension of the Hungarian capital. Its development was proposed by Count István Széchenyi, one of the main figures in eighteenth century Hungary. Its official name is Széchenyi Chain Bridge. Works were begun in 1839 to the arrangements of English specialist William Tierney Clark with money related backing of Baron György Sina, a Viennese agent. The development was administered by Scottish engineer Adam Clark, who later on went ahead to wed a young Hungarian lady and settled down in Hungary. The spot at the Buda end of the extension has been named after him. The introduction of the Chain Bridge occurred on 20 November 1849. The iron chains, on which the street bed hangs, are held by two 48-meter waterway wharfs in classicist style. From here comes the name "Chain Bridge". The chain-connections have been made of iron plates with a length of a few meters, its parts are associated by vast bolts taking into account the chain to be a genuine chain and to make few developments. The chains have been driven through the top of some portion of the columns where they lay on substantial iron seats. Between the two columns, the chains are hanging low, and outside the columns, they prompt the riverbanks where they run underground with minor cracks. Here, profound underground you can discover the supposed chain-loads in which the diving chain-finishes are being moored by inconceivable iron squares inclining to the dividers of the loads. In the season of its development, the Chain Bridge was the suspension span with the second-biggest compass on the planet. Entries are enhanced with lion head-molded capstones and the emblem of Hungary to the crown and a wreath of takes off. Budapest is the best place to visit with your loved ones and Family.

The inauguration of the Chain Bridge took place on 20th November 1849. Adam Clark Square near The Széchenyi Chain Bridge features a stone of zero kilometers. Miklós Borsos sculpted the stone. It is the starting point of all roads in Hungary. This is also the point from where the cable car departs up to Buda Castle. It offers spectacular views of the Chain Bridge, the Danube, Buda and Pest. The tunnel is also built under Castle Hill. It is also built by Adam Clark and i.e. accurately as long as the Chain Bridge. Hungarians have an anecdote that the bridge can be pushed into the tunnel when it rains.

In Budapest there was no permanent connection between Pest and Buda, before the Széchenyi Chain Bridge was constructed. Those who wanted to travel between Buda and Pest had to take the ferry in the summer. And in winters they had to walk across the frozen Danube. But temperatures should be low enough. But then weather change was unexpected, which could lead to any crossing impossible. Then the nearest bridge was in Vienna. It was about 250 kilometers away. People could get trapped for days on the wrong side of the river. István Széchenyi father died in Vienna, in 1820. He had to wait a week to cross the river. Being unlucky he missed his father’s funeral. He was so disturbed by this that he decided to build a bridge. He established a foundation to do investment in constructing a permanent bridge over the river Danube. The English engineer William Tierney Clark designed the Széchenyi Chain Bridge. Adam Clark later oversaw its construction. The inauguration of the bridge took place on 21st November 1849. It is one of the symbolic buildings of Budapest.
