Sava Bridge, Belgrade

(4.1/5 based on 80 reviews on the web)
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.

  • We go by foot across this bridge this weekend, and it was very nice experience. View on the river Sava was nice.  more »
  • She reminds of a bridge in Riga or the Erasmus bridge in Rotterdam. A really great design, the to the drive it invites.
