Elizabeth Bridge

Elizabeth Bridge (21B)

The first ´Elizabeth Bridge` was built on the site of the present day one between 1897 and 1903. The primitive structure was two-hundred and ninety metres long and in its time was the world’s longest hanging bridge. 

However, during the Second World War it was destroyed and became impossible to repair. It was therefore decided to build a completely new bridge. 

The construction you see today dates back to the year 1964 and was designed by the architect Pál Sávoly. It kept its original name, in memory of Queen and Empress Elizabeth, great benefactor to the Hungarian people.

On offer from this white, resplendent structure are some superb views of the area around ´Castle Hill`, as well as the other nearby bridges.
