- The Margit (Margaret) Bridge not only spans the Danube, it also links two roads. It connects Buda to Pest via the Nagykorut (outer ring road), as well as to Margit Island in the centre of the Danube. It was completed in 1876, although the spur leading onto the island was added in 1901. This section is the only remnant of the original structure, which was destroyed during World War II. The vista from here is arguably the most spectacular in Budapest, with a view of Parliament and Castle Hill illuminated at night and the curving Danube shimmering in the midst of it all.
