Chain Bridge in Budapest
You’ll really be wondered at the Chain Bridge in Budapest. The bridge, designed by William Tierny Clark in 1840, links the two parts of the city - Buda and Pest - and has become a symbol of Budapest. The Chain Bridge lighting scheme considerably enhances the bridge at night. GE lamps have been directed to highlight the bridge's unique architectural and decorative detail, which previously had not been visible at night, including the two coats of arms. The first connection between Pest and Buda was made by the Chain Bridge or Széchenyi lánchíd, named after count Széchenyi, who took the initiative to build the bridge. In 1836 he gave the project to the builders of the Thames Bridge in London, England, William Clark and Adam Clark. The 375 meters long and 16 meters wide bridge, a superb engineering feat, was opened on November 20, 1849. In 1857 Adam Clark dug a 350 meter long tunnel through the Castle Hill to connect the bridge with the Buda hinterland.
