Asparuhovo Bridge

REF NR: 1749

With its impressive size Asparuhovo Bridge has become one of the symbols of Varna. The bridge is 2050 m long and 50 m high.

SInce it's construction in 1976 it has become an important transport junction, and for several years it has been a point of interest for extreme sport activities like bungee jumping.

Before it was constructed, crossing Varna Lake was done mostly by ferry, which greatly impeded the traffic between the norther and southern black sea coast.

Today, the bridge is part of the motorway Cherno More (Black Sea) and the European Road E87.
