Chain Bridge to be Lit in Scottish National Colours to Honour St Andrew’s Day

Miklós Halász-Szabó 2018.11.29.

Budapest’s Chain Bridge will be lit in blue and white, the Scottish national colours, on Friday and Saturday, in honour of that country’s national holiday, St Andrew’s day.

Iain Lindsay, the UK’s ambassador to Hungary, will talk at a short ceremony on Eötvös square before the lights are turned on. The Chain Bridge will be lit from afternoon until midnight both days.

The building of Budapest’s iconic bridge and the Castle Tunnel were overseen by Edinburgh-born engineer Ádám Clark.
