Master of the Chainbridge

The Tunnel under the Castle Hill is the home of Mr Janos Fazekas and his family, who is the master of the Chain Bridge. He lives in the appartment at the entrance of the Tunnel since 40 years and he still likes his job, even though he gots lots of “funny” alarms from youngsters passing by about the lions of the Bridge running away and so on…:) His duty is to keep the Bridge as it is, check the state of the chains and the structure and also to clean the Lions who occasionaly “receive” hats and cigars in their mouth and other strange things.


Many anecdotes have been told about the Chain Bridge. A popular one is about the lions, which were place in 1852 at both ends of the bridge. Although they have tongues (they are just not visible from the point where you will see the lions), people mocked the sculptor about the lions not having them. In shame, he jumped from the bridge into the Danube. Actually it is a legend, János Marshalkó, the sculptor died years later, as a satisfied retired man.

Another story says that the tunnel under castle hill, which is right in front of the bridge, was just built as a shelter for the Chain Bridge when it rains.

But there is also one interesting fact worth to mention: Everybody, even aristocracy who was exempt from taxation, had to pay the bridge toll. As noblemen of Hungary were free from it on their own right since 1222 (!), there was quite a ribillion! According to another legend, “father” of the bridge, Count István Széchenyi was asked, if there could be any exemption. Széchenyi answered: “Yes, there is. When somebody goes over the bridge, pays. But when somebody pass the Danube beside the bridge, is free to pay the toll! ” Today, of course, the bridge is free for use. Once upon a time the named toll was collected by the master of the bridge, Mr. Fazekas says, his grand-grand father.
