Széchenyi Chain Bridge
The Széchenyi Chain Bridge was the first permanent #bridge across the Danube in #Hungary, and opened in 1849
The sculptor János Marschalkó was said to be so pleased with the #lion #statues that he declared then #perfect, and swore he would jump into the river below if this was not true...
The carpenter looked at them and enquired "Don't lions normally have tongues?"
...fortunately János was a good swimmer!
