The Freedom Bridge

Freedom Bridge in Budapest

I braved the cold weather in Budapest to take this shot of the Freedom Bridge from up the hill.  This bridge apparently was named after Emperor Franz Joseph I, but the Hungarians didn’t admire the Emperor as much as his wife, Elizabeth of Austria, so they prefer to call this bridge “Freedom Bridge” instead.  It was destroyed in World War II and reconstructed according to the original plans in 1946.
