More bridges over Vltava in Prague

Prague is going to have more bridges over the River Vltava. The reason is simple: the number of bridges is not sufficient for the increased volume of traffic.

The building of the first, 35 meters long, bridge should start in 2009. It will connect Prague’s Troja with Holesovice. The bridge will be not only for cars but also trams. Also new foot bridges will connect island Stvanice with Karlin and Holesovice with Karlin a Rohansky island.

There are 17 bridges over Vltava now, four of them are railway bridges, one is designed only for trams. The longest bridge in Prague, Zeleznicni bridge (railway bridge), is 1100 meters long. Longest bridge for cars is Libensky bridge with 780 meters. The oldest bridge in Prague is Charles bridge finished in 1402.
