The Bridge of Lies is actually a small iron pedestrial bridge with a nice legend behind it. We've seen it in the winter, before Christmas and it was decorated with lots of lights, thing which seemed a little disturbing. It's a place not to be missed and a nice way to enter the Old Town.

With map in hand that we collected from the tourist centre we proceeded to visit the attraction/sites that this amazing city has to offer. It was fun to read about the history of the bridge as there are a few legends that are associated with it. Our favourite is the one, if you lie when on the bridge it shimmers.

It is one of the oldest iron bridge built in Romania (1860). The legend says if somebody lies on the bridge, the bridge shakes till the lier comes back to the reality. During the time, many couples wanted to check this. Be one of them!

This very famous bridge of Sibiu fits well into the old town, with small streets and different elevations. It's a must see in Sibiu!

It is a romantic place to renew all your pledges - if you lie, the bridge breaks down. The reason is probably the steel construction style that did not inspire confidence when buildt. So it is also a place for bridge architecture fans, but evereyone coming in downtown Sibiu will pass anyway. Nice with the lights in winter times.

Lovely view at night with a canopy of lights though there too many other people to get a good photo.
