Photographer's Note

The Chain Bridge is one of Budapest's most famous landmarks. The magnificent suspension bridge was built in the 19th century across the river Danube to connect Pest with Buda, at the time still separate cities.
The Chain Bridge was the first permanent bridge in Budapest; the nearest bridge was in Vienna and during wintertime the only way to cross the Danube was by taking a ferry. A temporary bridge was only available in the summer: it had to be disassembled each year to protect it against drift ice.
