Bridges are the lifeblood of Budapest, a city created via the merger of Buda and Pest on either side of the Danube River.  In this drone video by contributor Smmaxim, you'll get a bird's eye view of almost all of these bridges, shot from a vantage point flying above Buda Castle.  The oldest and best known is the  Széchenyi Chain Bridge, which was built in 1849, 25 years before the union.  With a total length of 375 meters (over 1.2k ft.), it was considered one of the world's engineering marvels.

The Hungarian capital city Budapest is one of Europe's great cultural treasures.  Lying on the Danube River, it began as two separate cities on either side of the river, Buda and Pest (Buda on the western side and Pest on the eastern), which were unified in the 19th century.  While Budapest saw very heavy fighting during its seige by the Red Army in the last stages of World War II, much of the damage was repaired.  Helidrone Media used a DJI Inspire drone on a sunny morning to create this aerial portrait of the great city.

Heroes' Square, Budapest, Hungary

Contributor created a beautiful aerial view of Heroes' Square, one of the main landmarks of Budapest, Hungary.  The square was constructed around the turn of the 20th century, shortly after Buda and Pest had united to form the present-day city of Budapest.  The timing also coincided with the 1,000 year anniversary of the Hungarian conquest of the Carpathian Basin.  Unlike similarly named squares in other European capitals, Heroe's Square does not contain any interred remains.

Nomad Drone gives us a great view of the city of Budapest, perhaps the most geographically favored city on the continent of Europe.  It occupies the center of a great circular shape carved by the Alps, Tatras, Dolomite, and Carpathian mountains.  In addition, it touches two more of Europe's most prominent geographic features - the Danube River and the Great Hungarian Plain.  Founded over 1,000 years ago, Budapest is, quite literally, the crossroads of Europe.  It was no accident that a great city sprung up here.
