Are you planning to visit Budapest anytime soon? City and river is always a great combination. The Danube played an important role in the history. Believe it or not, winter time people were crossing the frozen river on foot or on their chariot. Spring and summer they used little boats. Let me share with you the stories of our three historical bridges in Budapest. The very first bridge that connected Pest and Buda was constructed in the 18th century and it was a floating bridge, which was more like a temporary solution, they used shallow-draft boats to support the deck. This structure couldn't have been used during winter time.
