Negrelli Viaduct

Architect: Alois Negrelli, firmy bratří Kleinů a Vojtěcha Lanny

Year of completion: 1851

Until 1910, it was the longest bridge in Europe, thanks to its 87 arches spanning across Nové Město, Karlín, Holešovice, the Vltava River, and Štvanice Island. The Negrelli Viaduct, dating back to the mid-19th century, is the second oldest surviving bridge in Prague. Its construction allowed trains to depart from Masarykovo nádraží towards Dresden. The section above Karlín is made of sandstone, while granite was used as the construction material for the parts over the river. The bridge’s simplistic design adds to its aesthetic appeal, as does its uniform concept, which was later altered by subsequent reconstructions and additions. From 2010 to 2012, the entire 1,111 meters long structure underwent renovation, restoring its original charm.
