Places to visit in Budapest. Languages: en, ru, he

Today the bridge is called the Bridge of Freedom. It was built at the end of the nineteenth century and was called the Customs Bridge, because on the opposite side from Buda, in Pest, there was a customs post. The transportation of goods from wealthy Buda to the popular Pest was taxed. The mast of the bridge is decorated with Turulla birds. This mythical bird comes to Hungarian history from the Ural Mountains - the region from where the Magyars came to the Danube. This bird looks like a falcon and is a symbol of strength and courage.
