The first day on Hungary tour itinerary is Széchenyi Chain Bridge, which is another world-famous landmark in Hungary and based in Budapest. The construction of this bridge which took nine years to complete is the oldest bridge connecting the two sides of Budapest. This bridge is considered to be a product of architectural and engineering excellence. As you enter the bridge, you will encounter lion statues, which are thought to be guards of the entrance. Along the sides of the bridge, couples attach locks as a declaration of their love for each other. This structure looks especially beautiful at night when the towers are lit up. Against the night sky, the bridge looks magnificent and makes great photos.
This building is also known as Buda Castle and is a beautiful piece of architecture located over the Castle Hill. This is known to be the royal residence starting from the 13th century. This place can be accessed via a cable car which starts running from Clark Adam Square. When you enter the palace, you will notice an array of local Hungarian treasures as well as art pieces.
