Sibiu - The Bridge of Lies

The Bridge of Lies was the first wrought iron bridge in Romania, built in 1859 by Fredericus Hutte.
It connects Lower and the Upper Town, or the Little Square and Huet Square.

Legend has it that the name derived from the merchants' fiery disputes which flared up around it,
 or from the passionate, but transitory, vows of young lovers who often met here.

It is the oldest iron bridge in service in present-day Romania, and it was listed as historic monuments in 2004.
