Liberty Bridge

We all know the world-famous Chain Bridge and its story, but there's another great sight for the bridge-lovers of Budapest: the Liberty Bridge. Constructed between 1894 and 1896, it's the smallest of the Danube bridges in the city - however it's one of the most beautiful ones. Located at the foot of Gellert Hill, the bridge is very famous amongst the youngsters of Hungary, because occasionally it transforms into an only-pedestrian bridge.

Like the Chain Bridge, Liberty Bridge was also destroyed in the Second World War, but it was the first that was reconstructed. But still, it had to wait some more years for the glow up: after the war, it was painted gray because that was the only color left. Only in 1984, after a renovation, got its green color back.
