Roman Bridge (Serbia)

The old stone bridge, known as the Roman Bridge, across the Ljubovje River, is located in western Serbia. It was built during the time of the Romans  (16th century),  and it is still serving today. The present appearance was obtained in Turkish time.  It was built in the shape of a bow, of stone, and instead of mortar, a melted lead was taken, taken in a mine that was located near the place where the bridge was built.

The bridge is located on the former caravan road towards Valjevo, in unspoiled nature and pure Ljubovija. Width of the roadway, directional from the cobblestone, 3.4 meters, and a large bow is a diameter of 11.65 meters.

Since 1983, the Roman Bridge is under the protection of the Republic of Serbia as a cultural monument of great importance. After that reconstructions were made, and in the last 2016, today everyone who passes here will stop for a moment and enjoy the landscape.

  1. Great looking bridge structure. Old but still serviceable today. Congratulations to the bridge builders (wherever they are now) and to the conservation authorities for preserving such a grand old bridge and its surrounding areas in all its beauty.
