Photographer's Note

View on Danubio river.
From low side to high side you can see the best famous Chain Bridge, The Palace Hotel and the Parlament.

The Chain Bridge - today still the most recognizable symbol of the city – was the first permanent bridge over the River Danube and the logical conclusion of that was the legislative unification in 1873 of Buda, Pest and Óbuda into one city – Budapest. A Council of Public Works was formed, whose direction determined both the future shape and the enduring beauty of the city. The great boulevards were laid down – most notably Andrássy út and the körútak or ring roads – and the transformation of Budapest into a modern world class city truly began.
