Long Description:
This is an interesting bridge in that it allows an outflow of water to the small pond, or I suppose inflow into the pond that is evident on the east side. On the west side, the watercourse is not visible.
From a satellite image it appears that the watercourse flows westward underground into the Berounka River. On the other hand, one of the photos I took makes it appear as though the west arch has been closed so perhaps the water flow had been closed off after during time of construction or perhaps later.

The bridge itself is of wonderful stone construction. It contains two low arches. On its top is a nice christian cross with a sculpture.
