The pedestrian bridge in the city centre has actually no name, but has always been known as The Bridge of the Lovers. That is because it was commonly used place for meetings of young people in love. They take a break above one of the busiest crossroads in the city.
While the bustle is taking place below them, they can enjoy the colours of the sunset going down behind the Vitosha Mountain. I have no emotional bond to this place, but it became one of my favourite spots when they added the open air gallery. Above the heavy traffic nice photographic exhibitions and sometimes festivals take place. Now is the exhibition “Bulgarian Nature”, part of the program for Sofia competition for European culture capital.
No matter if you are just willing to pass across the street, want to enjoy some art, trying to ignore the rush hour by looking at the mountain, or came precisely for the busy street (this is quite an attraction for some people from the Province), this is the best place to do that. The combination of all these different plug-ins makes the place even more special.
