More than a bridge, a symbol of the city

The Bridge of Lies

Perhaps the most important tourist attraction of the city, known internationally, is the Bridge of Lies. Although it appears to be just a pedestrian walkway in the historic center, it has several legends behind it. The most widespread seems to be that any lie told on this bridge will be found out later. However, another says that the merchants who deceived the locals in the old days, were thrown over the railing of this bridge.

The iron for the bridge was prepared in 1859 at the Filia foundry, and the following year it was built in Sibiu. Officially it was opened to the crossing on December 17, 1860.
