  • Great small, but firm bridge close to thr center. River below is beautifully turqouise. A bit problem with parking around, but you can walk from center or dairy production Planika.  more »
  • Not a must see on its own, but a nice sight if you're going to Slap Kozjak anyway. Good place to take some pictures.  more »
  • Nice bridge, but that's it; the view of the valley and the Soca river is spectacular. It is on the way to Kozjak falls, parking for the falls is after the bridge.  more »
  • The view was not really breathtaking. But if you park the car at the parking site and walk towards the waterfall, there is a rope bridge. There you have a much better view.
  • Amazing views. The river is very impressive and beautiful
  • Awesome view of Soča river.
  • Bridge with a stunning view, parking spaces are around the bridge about 150 m away 👍
  • Great spot to see the Soca River. Very easy walk from town. Or drive down... but parking is limited.
