View of Liars Bridge and old city

Liars Bridge or Bridge of Lies in Lesser Square , erected in 1859.

There are some legends to the bridge: Crossed by a liar the bridge is said to start quaking, and cheating merchants were supposedly thrown off the bridge.

Originally, the bridge was made of wood. About 200 years later, in 1859, the Bridge of Lies was rebuilt, being the first cast iron bridge in Romania. The pedestrian bridge built over the street Ocnei connects the Lower Town to the Upper Town. Eleven years ago, the Bridge of Lies has been included on the historical monuments in the county of Sibiu and is a true symbol of the former European Capital of Culture.
