The Danube or Donau is Europe's second longest river, after the Volga. The Danube was once a long-standing frontier of the Roman Empire, and today flows through 10 countries (Austria, Croatia, Bulgaria, Hungary, etc), more than any other river in the world.  Budapest is the capital and the most populous city of Hungary, and one of the largest cities in the European Union. 

Liberty Bridge connects Buda and Pest across the River Danube. The Liberty Bridge is the shortest bridge in Budapest’s center. Initially built as part of the Millennium World Exhibition at the end of the 19th century, the bridge features art nouveau design, mythological sculptures and the country’s coat of arms adorned on its side. The northeastern house contains a museum on the bridges of Budapest. The bridge was the first in the city to be rebuilt after suffering heavy damage during World War II.

Elisabeth Bridge is the third newest bridge of Budapest, Hungary, connecting Buda and Pest across the River Danube. It is named after Elisabeth of Bavaria, a popular queen and empress of Austria-Hungary, who was assassinated in 1898. Today, her large bronze statue sits by the bridge's Buda side connection in the middle of a small garden. The original bridge was destroyed during the WW2, a significantly simplified version was built between 1961–1964.

The Belgrade quay runs from the Liberty Bridge to the Elisabeth Bridge in Budapest on the Pest side of the Danube. The quay was built in 1865-66 under the leadership of Ferenc Reitter.
