The Pont Neuf (New Bridge) is, despite its name, the oldest standing bridge across the river Seine in Paris, France. It is a stone arch bridge, completed in 1607. The bastions give the Pont Neuf a fortified appearance. Here is an image of a stamp depicting the Pont Neuf and the Île de la Cité, designed and engraved by Albert Decaris, and issued by France on May 27, 1978 to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the beginning of the construction of the bridge, Scott No. 1599, Y&T No. 1997, plus a contemporary photo of the bridge from a similar angle. Note: This stamp was awarded the 1978 Grand Prix de l'Art Philatélique.

The above Slovak stamp of St John of Nepomuk and the Charles Bridge was part of a joint issue between the Czech Republic (SG4), Germany (SG2504) and Slovakia (SG158).

I do not know in what section refer to the note, but let it be a totally unexpected theme: "Bridges and the sea."
Recently I get in my collection an interesting stamp: Germany, private mail "Northern Courier",



featuring gorgeous handsome cable-stayed bridge across the Strait of Stralsund, which separates Rügen from the mainland to the north-east.
The island of Rügen, this is a topic for an interesting historical article - one of the legendary northern centers ecumene - the ancestral home of the Germans -- Rugova (or ulmerugov), and later one of the most important centers of Slavic paganism to the famous shrines of Arkona, the alleged birthplace of Rurik, the island of Ruyan ancient Slavic traditions.

But back to the bridge: the main pylon of the bridge is next to a small island Danholm in the middle of Strait, but the bridge itself is so high hovers over it, that it is impossible to get to the island itself by car



and here on the train, perhaps, that it is possible. The well-known series of the GDR, "Industrial archeology", 1988 - the railway lift bridge over the canal Stralsund "Brick Channel"




really impressive building, completely devoid of grace and the expressive power of embodying the German technical thought!



Now compare these two bridges, so to speak, their family photo. Railway bridge completely lost amid the greatness of his young neighbor. Passing on the new bridge may not notice it at all



But here is confident that other monument of German engineering with high Shtralzaundbrucke with interest and looking at all the passengers (disciplined German drivers do not count) - a little more than a kilometer separates them from the famous barque "Comrade"



risen to eternal parking in the harbor of Stralsund. Originally built as a sailing school, he was the prototype of several training ships.
Kherson Naval cadets dream, the hero of many films about the sea, the embodiment of hope for "Scarlet Sails", the trophy of the USSR after the war, he had brought a lot of trophies from the sea regattas, the school for generations of German, Soviet and Ukrainian sailors





He finally returned after a long and hard life in the home port for the native name "Gorh Fock" (alias the popular German writer Johann Kinau, who lived his short life, merchant and writer, but was killed in a sea battle)



and a museum. What is a happy ending for the vessel, which once even lucky enough to be drowned by Soviet tanks.
