Liberty Bridge Closed For Picnic
On four consecutive weekends from July 14, until August 5, this key Budapest bridge will be closed for traffic to let pedestrians picnic there if they wish, deputy mayor Alexandra Szalay-Bobrovniczky said.

She said the project was launched in 2016 as a grassroots initiative, it has come to attract large crowds.

As in previous years there will be local bands playing there above the Danube, plus flamenco and swing dancers, zumba, salsa and yoga on 'Szabadság Híd'.

    By Anne Zwack: There are people who have been living all their lives in Budapest who have never even been to the Csepel Island. The reasons for this are obscure as the centre of Csepel is ten minutes drive from the Palace of Arts. The island was the first stopping place for the invading Magyars and is called Csepel after Arpad’s groom.
