Great Synagogue towers, Budapest.  There were many, many Jews in Budapest before the Holocaust (24% of the population). Jews were attracted by the liberal policies of Austro-Hungary, which allowed them to flourish in law, medicine, banking, commerce and even the government bureaucracy. Many synagogues remain.

Construction of the original Elisabeth Bridge (Erzsébet-híd.) Lasted 1897-1903! The bridge was named after Elizabeth, Empress of Austria and Queen of Hungary, wife of Francis Joseph I assassinated in Geneva in 1898. Its 290-meter span over the Danube, made it the longest suspension bridge in the world. Blown up by German troops at the end of WW II, it is the only Danube bridge in Budapest that was not rebuilt after the war. Instead, a new bridge was built between 1960 and 1964.
