“Heavy traffic and symbolism”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

A beautiful old bridge, though not well preserved, with a heavy traffic, is has become more than a landmark being a plase for protests on ecological problems and anti-government rallies in the last few years.

“The only decorated bridge in Sofia”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

A bridge crossing the rather small river running trough Sofia. It names comes from the eagles atop the four pillars of the bridge.
It is located really close to the Soviet Army monument (5 minutes on foot).

“Terrific traffic, not much attention see it...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

It's make sense to be rated as a attraction in Sofia. The bridge and the four eagles in the columns are nice in it's own way. Such a view braces the tension at the most crowded traffic street in Sofia. Such a traffic doesn't let you even pay a good attention at the bridge...

“Nothing really to see”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

There is nothing really here to see - drive by in a taxi and that is all the time you need. There is also a lot of traffic around this area.

“Over the traffic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Its name comes from the bronze statues of eagles on the bridge, which are symbolic of his patrons and protectors. Eagle Bridge was built as a symbol of freedom as here are first met prisoners from Diyarbakir, speaking out against slavery.
