Margit híd or Margaret Bridge (sometimes Margit Bridge) is a bridge in Budapest, Hungary, connecting Buda and Pest across the Danube. It is the second northernmost and second oldest public bridge in Budapest.
It was designed by French engineer Ernest Goüin and built by the construction company, Maison Ernest Goüin et Cie. between 1872–1876, the engineer in charge being Émile Nouguier. Margaret Bridge is the second permanent bridge in Budapest after Széchenyi Chain Bridge. This bridge leads up to Margaret Island, its two parts enclosing 165 degrees with each other at the embranchment towards the island. The reason for this unusual geometry is the fact the small extension to connect to Margaret Island was hastily inserted into the original design but not built until two decades later due to lack of funds.
The bridge's two ends are
Jászai Mari tér (northern end of Grand Boulevard) and
Germanus Gyula park (stop of Szentendre HÉV; Lukács Baths and Király Baths are nearby).
It is 637.5 m in length and 25 m in width.

Fantastic cityscape with the focus on that wonderful bridge. Thanks for the really good note too. The lights of the city are beautiful, especially the twin spires in the foreground.
Thanks for sharing.

Though perhaps there's a slight tilt to the left here, this is a gorgeous blue hour shot north from Gellert. The orange tones throughout are wonderful, and I really like the placement of the two spires overlooking the Danube and the bridge. Budapest at night is really a wonderful place - I love how the riverfront is lit, making beautiful shots like this possible. Thanks!

an excellent capture at the blue hour, from a high POV that offers us a beautiful panoramic sight on the Danube and the city, with a splendid lighting in the bridge and in the elegant architecture.
The reflections on the water increase the beauty of your composition.
You have managed skillfully the exposure, and have reached a high image quality.

good shot during the blue hour in Budapest. I like the lights, architecture and bridge over the Danube. Photo is well done.
Have a nice day.

my friends have just come back from Hungaru and have been showing their photos from the very same POv, but your shot is so much better ;-) Taking pictures at night still seems to be a little bit challenging for me, so I appreciate your picture very much. Lovely light management and perfect perspective.
Very well done and have a nice Sunday!
abmdsudi (26295) 2013-01-13 5:19
I love the softness on the water which adds to the composition with lots of depth of a beautifully executed night shot from high vantage point which has such enormous impact. What a show of warm lights and colors creating striking contrast to the night sky complemented by such wonderful clarity and sharpness. The spanning bridge and the steeples ensure focus in concentrated there. It's a splendid shot to be proud poff, My congrats.

another very pleasing view across Budapest. I never get tired of seeing such views, especially when bridges and blue hours are included :)
excellent illumination of lights, and soft blues.
love the mood and the city views.
