Bridge of Lies, Sibiu

3.5
#Bridge, #Landmark, #Must See
Bridge of Lies represents the oldest forged-iron bridge in Romania, decorated with rosettes plus floral and geometric motifs. It bears the city's coat of arms on its southern side. Friedrich-Hütte built the bridge in 1859, probably for the circulation of carts. The peculiar name of the bridge--which is the result of the mispronunciation of a German word "Liegenbrücke," meaning "the bridge down"--has inspired several local legends. One story goes that the bridge repeats all the lies uttered by the people crossing it, thus bringing the liars down to earth.

  • A typical and beautiful bridge! Contrary to legend, it does not collapse when we pronounce a lie (tested and untrusted) ;)

  • Alias Bridge of lies because of merchants who met here to do business ... not always transparent or lawful. On this bridge lovers exchanged vows of eternal love. In fact, legend has it that whoever tells a lie on this bridge is set to be unmasked. Quaint, well worth the visit.
