  • Stone bridge in this area were different buildings in the upstream and downstream sides of the river. Also, has dammed the water in the River upstream, downstream water there is little on the upstream side of the River on the downstream side will differ.

  • During our recent trip to Iran we visited three bridges of Isfahan. The oldest is the Shahrestan Bridge near the city which crosses a reservoir fed by the river Zayandeh, therefore, of stagnant water that is rich in algae and other aquatic plants. When you get out of the way, looks inviting to descend down the escarpment for grabbing at the level of the water and take a picture from that perspective. But our guide informed they immediately called back asking to use only the paths because around the tall grass snakes often hide, even poisonous. So we walked across the bridge in in black and you have a nice view on construction and bows from the opposite bank. We had the good fortune to be accompanied by two talented drivers who served us hot tea and dates on our return on a coffee table that I call "TischleinDeckDich". A nice surprise. The other bridges in the center of Isfahan are more spectacular and very animated with people in the evening. Another magical moment of our trip.

  • Sassanid era and although renovated afterwards. Has a duty station. Currently no longer on the river which was diverted in parallel, so it appears as if it were on a dry river. Has an interesting structure, made to withstand heavy flooding (when there were).

  • This is the oldest bridge ever built on the river. It dates back to more than 2000 yrs ago. Unfortunately, it's not being maintained to the level it should. Bt, it's definitely worth a visit.
  • Very hot but that's so beautifull
  • تاریخی است. اما رسیدگی بهش نشده.
  • The Shahrestan bridge is the oldest bridge on the Zayandeh River in Iran

Where to stay in Esfahan

Esfahan includes a smattering of accommodations that provide variety, if not depth of choice. Along the main Chahar Bagh drag and the streets that lead off it, you'll find a few fairly basic hotels, providing decent rooms in the city center, close to the main attractions and services. Hostels can be found, with dormitory rooms providing particularly good options for budget-conscious travelers who want to be right in the thick of things close to the main square and the bazaar. The most luxurious hotels in town lie further to the south, set in historic buildings overlooking the river.
