Margit híd or Margaret Bridge (sometimes Margit Bridge) is a three-way 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.

This floodlit bridge with its strong graphical lines makes a fine photographic subject. Another well exposed blue hour composition with very good colours and clarity. I like how the lights on top of the bridge are mimicked by those in the far distance.

What a lovely way to capture one of the great cities to visit. The bridge makes a very good centre of interest but what draws my eye are those mesmerizing golden reflections. Beautifully taken at a good time of the day.
Kind Regards, Ann

A very difficult picture of these bridge but wonderful done, with a high quality, I like your photo work.
Composition and presentation are very well.
Sharpness and clarity make this picture attractive.
Very well done, TFS.

This is a great blue hour shot. The balance between natural and artificial lighting is great. The inclusion of the back of the boat adds a good sense of perspective for the shot. The reflection on the river is great.

Kolejne bardzo fajne ujęcie z Twojej wyprawy do Budapesztu. Ten oświetlony most pięknie przecina kompozycje i buduje wyjątkowa atmosferę. Super praca!

A delicious night composition, in which the illuminated bridge looks like a jewel, reflecting their lights on water, are gorgeous, perfect the sky with a touch of blue.
Have a nice day.

Wonderful cracking warm colours full of sparkling light and some nice foreground water reflections to add the sensation. What I like is that there is still some colour in the sky which works out better than a completely black sky. Very accomplished night time shot, capturing the stunning bridge with such detail and from a straight-on pov. Congrats.
