Sava Bridge, Belgrade
Categories: Bridges, Tourist Spots
The Ada Bridge or alternatively Sava Bridge is a cable-stayed bridge over the Sava river in Belgrade, Serbia. The bridge crosses the tip of Ada Ciganlija island, connecting the municipalities of Čukarica and New Belgrade. The bridge pylon is located on the tip of the island, which has been reinforced with large amounts of concrete and has been slightly enlarged to provide stronger foundations. Construction began in 2008, and the bridge opened on 1 January 2012. Adjoining roads were completed in 2013.HistoryIn 1923, architect Đorđe Kovaljevski created the first urbanization plan of the area that envisaged a bridge over Ada Ciganlija. The initial idea of what is today known as the Belgrade Inner City Semi-Ring Road, to which the bridge is an important part, were created at that time. This road was part of several plans under different names such as the Main Ring Road, Transverse Road, Eastern Tangent Road, each with slightly different routes. All the plans had one thing in common: the Ada Ciganlija Bridge. In early plans the bridge was placed closer to the Lake while the final project placed the bridge on the very tip of the island due to ecological concerns over the lake.LocationAda Bridge is the most upstream Belgrade bridge over the Sava river within the urban area. The bridge provides the only direct connection between the New Belgrade (Blokovi) and Čukarica (Banovo Brdo) municipalities. The bridge pylon is located on the tip of the Ada Ciganlija island.Plan to see Sava Bridge and other attractions that appeal to you using our Belgrade vacation generator.

Jedan od savskih mostova, ujedno i najnoviji, upotpunio je gradsku panoramu i sagradjen da malo rastereti ostale beogradske mostove na savi.
se ve desde infinidad de lugares pero pasar por el mejor en coche. Es muy moderno y por la noche esta iluminado con luces de coloreseen from an infinite number of places but through the best drive. Is very modern and at night is lit with lights of coloreshow original
Bridge almost looks ghostly in the distance. Beautiful view from the fortress. Great structure that connects the two Belgrades: the old and the new.
