Liberty Bridge 'Closed For Picnics' In July
This summer the people of Budapest can once again take over the Liberty Bridge for fun at weekends in July from midnight on the Friday until Sunday at midnight.

The goal is to change the bridge into a public space so, by the rules of public spaces, you can organize any program you want to there, such as picnics, say the organisers.

As in previous years, there will be local bands playing on top of the Danube, plus flamenco and swing dancers, zumba, salsa, and yoga. 

The City and River Association is working on the appreciation of the bank of Danube. The river which is the biggest, most characteristic natural treasure of the city is bordered by roads and it is almost impossible to access.

Dates and times: 
July: 6-7, 13-14, 20-21, 27-28,
from Friday midnight until Sunday midnight.
