Motherland Tour II/ Czech Republic

Čechův Bridge is the shortest bridge on the Vltava river in Prague. It is named after Svatopluk Čech (1846 – 1908),  a Czech writer, poet and journalist.  This 169 m long bridge was constructed of  stone (pillars) and iron (arches) between 1905 and 1908.  The roadway was made of wood until 1961. As the only Art Nouveau style bridge in the Czech Republic, it is protected by the state.
