Margaret Bridge

sights / Architecture

Lonely Planet review

At the time of writing, Margaret Bridge (Margit híd) had just undergone a massive three-year reconstruction. It introduces the Big Ring Rd to Buda, and is unique in that it doglegs in order to stand at right angles to the Danube at its confluence at the southern tip of Margaret Island. It was originally built by French engineer Ernest Gouin in 1876; the branch leading to the island was added in 1901.
