The Písek Stone Bridge is the oldest bridge on the area of Czech Republic and one of two oldest bridges in Central Europe, located in south Bohemian city of Písek. It was probably built in the 3rd quarter of the 13th century.It is sometimes called Stag Bridge because, according to legend, it was to be named after the first being to pass over it. At the time, town Písek was surrounded by deep woods, so the first being to cross the bridge was a stag. However, most local people calls it Old Bridge .It spans the Otava River, a tributary of the Vltava River. This bridge is in the gothic style with baroque statues and a cross. The length of the bridge is 109.75m and the width 6.25m. It is built on six pillars and has seven arches.Floods of 2002The bridge survived the floods in 2002. The flood water removed railings and some statues. After the flood, Písek started with the general reconstruction. The railings and statues were repaired; copy of one statue which was lost was created. The bridge is now supported by a net of concrete and iron tubes.

  • Regardless of the time of year, on the Písek stone bridge is beautiful. Across the bridge can only pedestrians and cyclists. While walking towards the town centre are looking to the right side, you can gaze at the malt house Písek Castle and city water plant. When it is nice, you can sit in the Cafe Mozart on the outdoor garden-and then you have the bridge as the Palm of your hand. If you go down the waterfront Čechovou street down the River, you can walk up the leading up to the river and see the whole bridge and bridge with Pisek panarama behind him.

  • Here I am at home, always when I am walking the bridge after the Písek. A bit of nostalgia:-) Stone bridge in is definitely one of the most interesting and certainly the most famous building in the sand. The oldest stone bridge has been beautifully restored after the great flood and still folds fully their purpose and the historical part of the city with the opposite bank.
