Nice walk along nice eshafan historic bridges begins at Si-o-se Pol – bridge of thirty arches. With its length of almost three hundred meters it is the longest in the town.

Outlook of the Sofeh mountain

From the dry riverbed of Zayanderudriver is visible small but interesting Sofeh mountain range (2 160 m asl) rising sharply above the endless plains, on which Esfahan is built. The ideal tip for a day hike.

Si-o-se Pol in the evening

The best atmosphere at these historic bridges is in the evening when they are amazingly lighted.

Si-o-se Pol as a pedestrian zone

When is the riverbed dry, you can walk next to the bridge to the other side. However, it is more comfortable on the bridge – in addition, all of these historic bridges work as a pedestrian zone.

Bridge Joubi

Set out from the bridge Si-o-se Pol along the river to the east. After almost a kilometer you pass around modern bridge Ferdowsi. Farther away is another historic one – Joubi. But it is not as impressive as the other ones.

Bridge Khayu is truly a masterpiece and almost every tourist visiting Esfahan wants to see it. On the other side of the bridge you can just wave for a taxi or walk to the town on foot. But it's not very close, about 2.5 km
