The original construction of the bridge between 1897 and 1903 was carried out according to the plans by Aurél Czekelius. Many houses and squares had to be destroyed at the Pest end of the bridge, today's Kossuth Lajos Street was straightened, and the bridge-gate and the two Eclectic "Klotild-Palaces", were also built. The beatiful bridge, the world's longest chain-bridge until 1926, was blown up in 1945 by the retreating German troops. Designed by Pál Sávoly, it was rebuilt as a cable-bridge in 1963.
