Tabi’at Bridge – Tehran’s modern landmark
The flow of life is nonstop in Tehran, from the aroma of freshly baked bread at the break of dawn in its every back alley, to its busy bazaars, and the bright lights of the capital, all bringing the good tidings of a dynamic city. Going to parks is a pastime for Tehranis in search of fresh air in green spaces. One of these popular parks is called Ab-o-Atash [Water and Fire] with fountains to cool down in the summer and fire towers to keep warm in the winter. A bridge connects this modern park to the older woods across from it called Taleghani. The unique design of this bridge has caught many an eye across the globe, making this a symbol of Tehran after Milad Communications Tower.
