Long Description:
Jenerálka is a small settlement nestled along a busy road to Kralupy with a chateau from the late 18th century. The chateau served as the headquarters of a part of the general staff of the Austrian army (the name of the settlement is derived from the word "general").

The chronograms are located on the bridge over Sarecky Stream.
The bridge was build in 1831 by Order of Canons Regular of Prémontré (also known as the Premonstratensians).

The Roman numerals of chronograms are larger than the other letters and are not color-coded from the rest of the text.

The year 1831 from the chronogram referring to building the bridge.
The year 1968 from the chronogram referring the last major reconstruction of the bridge.
