Long Description:
[EN]
This stone bridge is one of the oldest historic sites in Klodzko, an example of a construction rarely found elsewhere in Europe. Is is often compared to the famous Charles Bridge in Prague, but it is in fact much older. The bridge was erected somewhere between 1281 and 1390, but many votive statues reflecting the style of Baroque were later added.
