This is a bridge without an official name. Yes, really – look at the map. You might find the name, that local people use: The Railway Bridge.
This beautiful piece of true industrial art is in proper use every day – trains from Smíchov to Vyšehrad and back are crossing, while their hooting wafts all the way down the Vltava stream.
And you can walk it too. Do not miss this chance while being in Prague. You will get one of the best views of both banks and Prague castle at the same time. Not to mention numerous bridges. I love it especially when train comes by – the whole structure is shaking, the noise is extreme – and my industrial heart is in heaven.
The Railway Bridge was built in 1900-1901, in a place of much narrower one – for only one railway. In maps it is marked as “railway bridge / železniční most” or “the Vyšehrad railway bridge / vyšehradský železniční most”.
