The Liberty Bridge was built between 1894 and 1896 but it was partially destroyed during WW II (as were all Budapest bridges!) and then rebuilt right after the war, and then had a complete reconstruction between 2007-2009. This "love locks" thing is fairly recent. Apparently couples attached padlocks to the bridge to symbolize their ever lasting love for one another. Learn something new every day!
Actually the first night we went there, it was a crowded place with lots of people in a wide age range.since we were very very tired, we just drank some palinka and ate carrot. (the girl selling the carrots was very cute, we could not stand against her charm) and gone to hostel. ANYWAY we have gone there one more time for the market place. It was very very great. All kind of cheeses,jams,peanut butters( yummy) were being sold there. I guess it was a sunday. There was also some a vocal and a saxophonist playing live. We really enjoyed that jazzy market atmosphere.
BEST NIGHT EVER! before going there we drank some alcohol at city center that we had bought from the market near. It was very crowded. Many young people sitting,chatting and drinking. We were 4 girls, with 2 we had met in the hostel, real nice ones. Anyway after there we have gone to the night club called ötkert. First there was only old men trying to hit young girls with their bad dances but later the club got crowded. We had danced till morning,met many handsome guys and had so much fun.
