Fodor's Review

This bridge, which spans the river in front of the Katholische Hofkirche, is the reconstruction of a 17th-century baroque bridge blown up by the SS shortly before the end of World War II. It was restored and renamed for Georgi Dimitroff, one of the Bulgarian communists accused by the Nazis of instigating the Reichstag fire and first communist leader of postwar Bulgaria. After the fall of Communism the original name, honoring Augustus the Strong, was reinstated.
