The Marmantov Bridge

The feature photo is deficient in bicycles, but it more than makes up for it by a surfeit of arches – 12 in fact, although only 8 are visible here.  We passed this stone arched bridge on our ride to Ogulin a few days ago.  It’s an interesting bridge.  Built two centuries ago by a Marshall of Bonaparte when the French ruled this part of Croatia, it originally spanned a river that has since been diverted for a hydroelectric project.

This is just a placeholder for now. I’ll add a real description when I get more time.

    That would be a great bridge if there was a bike around! Well, at least you didn’t inflict us with a selfie. 😉

    Twelve arches in one structure? According to my Arch Chart, which I’ve been maintaining meticulously since this challenge started, you have set a new record. Congratulations!

    That is an interesting bridge — in the second photo of it on CB, there are buttresses — those are on the downstream side?
