Siosepol Bridge, Esfahan

4.5
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.

  • In October 2017 the River was dry for that great part of the charm both daytime as at night was much more poor. It's still interesting to visit her as well as the gardens and the banks of the Zayandeh River.

  • It looks stunning even when there is no water in the river. If you have a chance and visit the bridge with water in the river you feel like the history is going through. The architecture is really eye-catching and you cannot stop walking on the bridge once you get there. It takes you to the end.
  • Stunning architecture. Just wish the government would look after the nature. The river has fully dried up and only at some times of the year do they let the water come to the river again which is sad. But absolutely stunning sight to see. Specially when the water is there and you can see the bridge's reflection in the river
  • A nice old and long bridge. It's worth to wait for the dusk when they turn on the ligths. Around the bridge are many people enjoying a picknick in the parks around the bridge. Defintely worth a visit!
  • This place is fascinating when the water is flowing the river. Si o Seh Pol is the soul and one of the main attractions of the city. It gives you a very joyful nightlife experience.
  • This is a great place to see the beauty of Zayande-Rud river. Visit this historical bridge at night to see it at its utmost beauty.

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.
