chain-chain-chain

During her visit to Budapest, Euro Iggy was thrilled to see the Széchenyi Chain Bridge, one of Budapest's most famous landmarks. Opened in 1849, it's the city's oldest bridge and the first permanent dry link between Buda and Pest, the western and eastern side of Budapest. Though it was built by Scottish engineer Adam Clark, it was named after the bridge's initiator, István Széchenyi.
