Kriva Ćuprija is 8.43 meters long and stands 4.21 meters over the river bed. It is narrow (possibly around 1.50 m) and the soil is cobbled with large scales. It is amazing to think that for several centuries it has been a major link that was used by people and for goods. I am not sure that two donkeys heavily loaded could pass together in the middle! If that was a carriage, don?t even think about it!

The second photo shows the beginning of the passage that climbs on the northern side of the bridge, towards Oscar hotel.
