The 4 and the 6 trams cross above, affording the second (and final) opportunity to change and see the buildings of the Outer Ring Road (Nagykörút). There are not many tourists around here, for this is very much everyday Budapest.

On the left side are several luxury hotels (InterContinental, Sofitel, Marriott) that line the "Dunakorzó" or "Danube Promenade", as well as several top restaurants, which all have a great view of the Buda Castle District. The Dunakorzó is a perfect place for a nice stroll.

Built in perfect symmetry with the Chain Bridge ...
1051 Budapest, Vígadó tér
