The bridge above the lake

It took more than 25 years until they found a solution to widen the road at the Malom to (Lake Malom or Lake of the Lukacs Thermal Bath as they called it in the 19th century). Zsigmond Street (today it’s the Frankel Leo Street) was one of the most important roads in Buda but it was very narrow because of the lake.

They negotiated with the owner how to cover a part of the lake but they were afraid of what will happen with the quality of the water in the Lukacs Bath. There were several different plans, they disapproved of the idea of partly fill in the lake, so they built a bridge above. You can see this bridge today when you look at the lake from the entrance of the cave.
