Notes on the Geography of Hungary: Pest of the Habsburgs: Photo 47

world pictures Hungary: Pest of the Habsburgs




Like the Museum of Applied Arts, the Liberty Bridge was opened in 1896 to mark the Magyar's thousand-year occupation of this land. Originally the bridge was called the Franz Joseph Bridge, and it was he who opened it. The name's changed now, of course, but those birds are still up top. You didn't notice them, or think they were significant? Wrong. They're Turul Birds, embedded in Magyar mythology as bearers of divine messages. They alight in the Tree of Life and are accompanied by smaller birds bearing the souls of children to come.
