  • Between the two near Sofia University Park. Take the Eagle bridge river itself is very slim. Four Eagle statues are impressive.

  • The bridge got its name and its decoration to commemorate the transit of prisoners of Bulgarian army that had fought against the Turks. I.e. wanted in this way to show that they considered them all great national heroes. It was built over the river Perlobska in 1891 to designs by Vaclav Prosek, with the participation of irzi/Georg Prosek and Iozef Prosek. The Eagles and the lighting is from the factory of Rudolph Philipp Wagner in Vienna. The bridge is from then dedicated to boylgarikoys "Eagles"-exiled, imprisoned, tortured and then freed from a Turkish prison after the Russo-Turkish war (1877 – 1878) because here were officially residents of Sofia in March 1878. West of the bridge begins the most famous Avenue of the city with the large public buildings, while the East side is the entrance to the huge and most beloved Park residents of the capital.

  • A cute but bridge overlooking the city's drains. Walking a great Park with a lake where you can take a boat and take a ride. The pond does not inspire at all in my opinion. Full of games for children and bar areas.

  • I enjoyed walking the large public park that is next to the bridge. There was construction near the bridge while I was there so it was difficult to see it all. The park is visited by many people and there are some places to get some coffee and tea
  • Probably the dirtiest air in the entire balkan Peninsular. Beautiful bridge that has become a kingdom of automobiles. Noise, dust, traffic.
  • One of the iconic places in town, meeting spot for various occasions. It looks very nice after the last renovations.
  • Eagle Bridge is one of the emblems of Sofia, together with Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, the Sofia university and few others. It is a hell if you are a driver as it is mostly traffic jamed , but as a walker this doesn't concern me. The missing star is for the polluted air a logical outcome of the continuous traffic
  • A beautiful bridge near an amazing park. A lot of public transport going there. An amazing park nearby.

Where to stay in Sofia

Set yourself up for easy and convenient access to Sofia's historical core and its most popular tourist sites by staying in an upscale hotel in the city center. While you'll find some hotels on the main boulevard, look for modern hotels off the main streets to keep costs lower. Staying outside the center in the outlying neighborhoods means you'll need to use public transportation, but the network is extensive and accommodation prices farther out are lower. For a real budget-friendly option, consider staying in a hostel; the city boasts a wide array of these, many of which include breakfast.
