Jirásek Bridge

Its designers were an engineer František Mencl and architect Vlastimil Hofman. The commissioning took place in two stages. During the first stage the tram transport was set off along its central part and two years later was the rest of the bridge was put in operation. The rails were later removed.

The bridge over the river spans 5 concrete pillars and 6 parabolic arcs. Prior to the artistic aspect of the bridge was its functionality, so the artistic decor is austere. The surface is made ​​of plaster of artificial stone, the bridge has a concrete railing and lighting poles have glazed patio surface. On both bridgeheads there stand pylons and obelisks with decorative fountains.
