The Asparuhov Bridge is one of the symbols of Varna. It connects the Asparuhovo district to the rest of the city over the canals between the Black Sea and Lake Varna. It’s not only an important transport installation but also a place where extreme sports events take place, such as bungee jumping.
The Asparuhov Bridge is 2.05 km in length and 50 m in height, weighing 3,200 tons. It has 38 pairs of supports, each one capable of carrying 2,400 tons. The bridge experiences significant traffic, with 10,000 vehicles crossing it every day. Its construction began in 1973 when the need for a larger canal to link Lake Varna and the sea became necessary. The initial launch date was 30th September 1976, but construction was ahead of schedule and finished on September 8th.
