Siosepol Bridge, Esfahan
(4.5/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
With 33 stone arches spanning the Zayande River, Siosepol Bridge cuts an impressive double-deck figure. The bridge extends for some 300 m (984 ft) across the largest river in central Iran, a true masterpiece of stone masonry constructed in yellow brick and limestone by one of the greatest mathematicians of his time. Marvel at this feat of stonemasonry while walking the 14 m (46 ft) wide lane across the bridge, completed in 1602. Explore the side corridors of its upper deck, as the water rushes below. One of the most impressive bridges in Iran, this well-lit structure makes an exhilarating spectacle day and night.

  • A bridge really nice ... Beautiful life above and below the bridge. Shame about the lack of water in the river. It would have been even nicer

  • The bridge opened to clean. Tourists of course plenty of local people, it was a lively gathering place. Cars are not allowed.

  • Whole the spring and Fall, are the best time to visit Isfahan! When the water flows under the bridges and it creates a wonderful view! If you ask me, visit the bridge in the afternoon, when the lights are on and and families pack up to picnic. There are also some people who sings traditional songs on the bridge! Enjoy an unforgettable stroll on this beautiful bridge!
  • Underneath the bridge are stepping stones that allow you to cross part of the way (one or two are missing later on). It's great hopping from one to the next and I bumped into (literally) a family having fun under the bridge as well. We got chatting, said goodbye and I carried on hopping. Later that day at a market I bumped into them again and it was like catching up with old friends who I had not seen in ages.
  • Very beautiful. Please try to come to here at night, you will find better view of it.
  • This monument site is undoubtedly picturesque and awe-interesting. That's one of the world's must-sees.
  • It's really beautiful bridge and beautiful people. Lovely place ever.
