There are 7 tourism routes in Astara. These routes include historical and cultural monuments, sightseeing spots, shrines and places of faith, as well as settlements where rare handicrafts are developed.

 "White bridge" is located 15 km west of the Astara-Baku highway, in the village of Sipiyapart, Astara district. It is believed that this bridge belongs to the XVI-XVII centuries. The local population calls the bridge "Sipiyapard", translated from the Talysh language, "sipiya" means white, "pard" means bridge.

 According to legend, the bridge was built by the Safavid ruler Shah Abbas I. One day, Shah Abbas comes to this area to hunt. He has to cross the river valley in that area. When Shah returns after some time, he again leaves the same place. He sees a new arched bridge here and is very surprised. Shah learns that the bridge was built by a woman living on the river bank. The old woman had the local craftsmen build this bridge with the money from the eggs she sold.

 When the king heard this, he was angry, he did not think it was his pride to cross the bridge, and he ordered his followers that no one should cross this bridge. As soon as he reached the Shah's palace, he ordered the construction of a new arched bridge in that area, more magnificent than the one built by the old woman.

 From that day on, when the ruler's path passed through these arears, he used the "Sipiya Pard" built by his order, i.e. the "White Bridge".

There is a place near the Baku-Astara highway, in the southern part of Archivan settlement of Astara district - "Yanar Bulag Complex". The difference between this spring and other springs is that the water from it burns.

 Although earlier this event was considered a miracle, scientists have revealed that the burning of water is due to the presence of sulfur in it. This spring, whose age is unknown, popularly known as "Asadulla spring", does not dry up even in the hottest seasons of the summer and in times of drought.
