  • Come up here, and tourists don't see. But I did feel good personally, to come and the beautiful bridge. What a night of wonder. However, downtown has not been not to come alone?. But I didn't want to see, and.

  • One of the most iconic bridges in Sofia, although not that special in my opinion. Good for a couple of photos if you're in the area  more »
  • A nice little bridge over obmelevshuju River. It got its name thanks to the bronze statues of eagles on the bridge, symbolizing the patronage and protection. The four Eagle soar above the city as if Orlov bridge was built 2 years later after the construction of the bridge of Lions in 1891 year. Over his project worked architects Adolf Vaclav Kolar and Vaclav Proshek. Excellent photos here are obtained.

  • Great place with historical meaning for Sofia. Bad thing is it does not look better.. Hopefully it will after the underground works end.
  • Мостът е построен през 1891 година, две години след построяването на  Лъвов мост.  Орлов мост е построен като символ на свободата, тъй като тук за първи път са посрещнати заточениците от  Диарбекир, надигали глас против турското робство. За събитието днес напомня скромен каменен блок поставен през 90-те години от общината. Името му идва от бронзовите фигури на  орли  върху моста, които са негови символични покровители и защитници.
  • Frankly I don't know what the fuss is all about. It's a busy intersection but the bridge itself is nothing special. There are four eagles on each of the pillars of the bridge. They are nice to look at but I'm not sure it's worth a special trip.
  • Don't know why it is a tourist attraction. Just a normal bridge with an eagle at every corner's column. Also the river is ridiculous, no water flowing through.
  • Busy and important intersection at the heart of Sofia. A bridge is built above the Perlovska river and has bronze eagle statues on it. It is built two years after Lions bridge, at 1891. Both bridges are Vazlav Prosek's project, a Czech architect with Bulgarian heart. This is an iconic place for civilian protests against government. You can go to many parts of Sofia via public transport from there. It is located above the Sofia university subway station. Take the flat escalators from the exit of the station in order to get there.
