Long Description:

Depicted metric high water mark (HWM) you can find near the complex of the Premonstratensian convent in Milevsko, on the pillar of two-arch stone bridge over Milevsko stream (Milevský potok).

Milevský stream is a stream in the South Bohemian region, a right-hand tributary of the Smutná river, which drains a smaller area in the east of the Písek district. The length of the stream is 20.0 km. The catchment area is 76.8 km². It springs north of the village Chyšky at an altitude of about 655 m.


The road to the Milevsko convent led over a wooden bridge, but it was not restored after the dam collapse of the Milevsko pond during the flood in 1840. A new stone bridge over the Milevský stream, with two arches and a Baroque statue of St. John of Nepomuk, was completed in June 1857. This statue was transferred from the original bridge. Against the statue of St. John stands a cast iron Crucifixion, the erection of which was paid for from public collections. The bridge is 20 m long and 6 m wide. Above the apexes of relatively flat arches are stone grooves draining the bridge deck.
