Must see places in Tehran – Tabiat Bridge (Nature Bridge)
Designed by a young Iranian girl architect that won several national and international prizes for its creativity. The Tabiat Bridge connected two public parks over the width of the Moddares highway.
This bridge is designed to be a place for people not to pass by but to stay, spend time, and watch a beautiful view of Tehran. It is a social area rather than a simple bridge to cross.
You can enjoy the green nature, drink a coffee, have a takeaway snack and relax. The bridge is decorated by the lights at night so it’s worth visiting at night.
