Long Description:

Depicted small stone two-arch bridge spans Milevský potok (Milevsko stream) near the complex of the Premonstratensian convent in Milevsko.

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.
