Five Slovenian bridges II. - 2013



Old Bridge over the Drava in Maribor. Bridge was built between 1906 and 1912 as a replacement for an even older flat wooden bridge. At the time of its construction, it was one of the largest and stateliest bridges in the Austrian-Hungarian Empire. The entire bridge consists of an elegant, triple arch steel construction fastened to an arched stone abutment construction on the banks. The bridge was destroyed during World War II and later renovated in a somewhat different form.



Kandija Bridge over the Krka in Novo Mesto. The steel brige was build in 1898. It is designed in the form of an advanced truss element. A broad roadway was built on top of the box-like load bearing element, a unique feature among older municipal bridges in Slovenia.



The Rail Bridges at Zidani Most. Between 1824 and 1826, the five arch stone road bridge that still stands today was built on the initiative of Archduke John of Austria. In the framework of the construction of the Austria Southern Railway from Vienna to Trieste.

Some comments on this
http://goscf.com/t/1121&whichpage=5#129105 rod222 post :


The Danube and Black Sea Railway (DBSR). The Local Post of Kustendje and Czernawoda

The local post came into being in 1867 and this stamp of 20 Paras denomination was issued by the DBSR to frank the letters carried on DBSR railway between Czernawoda river port ( today Cernavoda)and Kustendje ( today Constanta ,a Black Sea port ).

Here is a DBSR stamp from my collection ( same with the two stamps posted by rod222 ) :


And as you can see there is NO bridge on this stamp !

The stamp design shows a rough drawing of a harbour , surrounded by a mountain range , with a railway line and train running close to the sea-shore , while the sky contains the star and crescent of Turkey. The view is supposed to represent the harbour of Kustendje.

Some more "material" of Anghel Saligny and The Cernavoda Bridge.
It seems that the bridge and the engineer are very famous and popular in Romania.

Giovanni da Verrazzano (also spelled with only one "z," 1485-1528) was a Florentine explorer of North America. The Verrazano–Narrows Bridge is a double-decked suspension bridge that connects the boroughs of Staten Island and Brooklyn in New York City. Here is an image of an airmail stamp depicting both the explorer and the bridge, designed by Italian artist Renato Mura, printed by photogravure, and issued by Italy on November 21, 1964 as one of a set of two similar stamps commemorating the bridge's opening day, Scott No. C138. Note: At the time of its completion, the Verrazano–Narrows Bridge, with a central span of 4,260 feet (1,298 m), was the longest suspension bridge in the world.

Dragon bridge, Ljubljana, Slovenia



original name: Jubilee Bridge of the Emperor Franc Jozef I
name: Dragon Bridge
type: arch
build: 1901
material: concrete
span: 33,34 m

The Dragon Bridge, originally named Jubilee Bridge (Jubilejni most), is one of Ljubljana's most typical examples of Art Nouveau architecture. It is Slovenia's first bridge paved with asphalt, Ljubljana's first reinforced concrete bridge and one of the earliest reinforced concrete bridges in Europe. The Dalmatian architect Jurij Zaninović designed the Bridge's decorative concrete covering, balustrades and sheet-copper dragon statues, which became a symbol of Ljubljana.
