side of the bridge. It is a reconstruction of the bridge that was destroyed during the second world war. The new bridge stands on the pillars of the old one. It's amazing to view at night with a lighting design created by Motoko Ishii, a respected Japanese lighting designer. The white suspension bridge is perpendicular to Budapest's main shopping district, Vaci utca.

I'll admit, this bridge kind of looks out of place. It's very modern for Budapest.

Nothing too special about this bridge. It is in a great location but it is not the most special river in town.

The Elizabeth Bridge is what I call "the white bridge". We stayed near this bridge, so we had a chance to walk on this bridge a few times. This is more modern looking than other bridges.

Modern bridge, it's alright but it is no comparison to the Chain Bridge further up.

Not nearly as handsome as the Chain Bridge, Erzsebet Hid is a nod to modernist Soviet-era architecture. It's safe and the traffic is not too bad, what more can you ask?

The most modern of the bridges that cross the Danube in Budapest, the Elizabeth Bridge is probably the only one I didn't trek across during my visit. It's not the prettiest of the city's bridges, but it is interesting to see.

Second most-used bridge across the Danube, ending at the Gellert monument on the Buda side.

В год строительства (1903) мост Элизабет считался самым длинным подвесным мостом в мире, и этот рекорд продержался до 1926-го года. Мост был назван в честь жены Йожефа Ференса королевы Элизабет, которая была популярна среди венгров. В 1945 году немцы взорвали мост. Настоящую окончательную форму он получил в 1964-ом году по проектам Пала Шавой.
