The Chain Bridge was the very first bridge in the city to link Buda and Pest. Completed in 1849, this beautiful piece of architecture is a vital part of Budapest's history. At night, it is the perfect place to take in a panoramic view of the lit-up city.This spectacular bridge has an equally spectacular history. It's a great place from which to take in a panorama of the city (which becomes even more impressive at night). This was the very first bridge to link the two cities of Buda and Pest. The project was started in 1839 by designer William Tierney Clark and engineer Adam Clark, and it was completed in 1849. The bridge celebrated its 150th birthday recently with a huge open-air festival.

There is such a story about a pair of lion piers on the Szechenyi Chain Bridge. It is said that the pair of lion sculptures were placed at the ends of the chain bridge and were found to have no tongue in the lion's mouth. The sculptor was ashamed of the ridicule of the crowd and finally jumped into the Danube. In fact, the lion's mouth has a tongue, but it is not easy to be seen. In addition, in 2001, the Hungarian stunt pilot Peter Bosenye successfully crossed the chain bridge with ultra-low altitude flight, which finally became the standard action of the current Red Bull aerobatic race.
