Nusle bridge

Architect: Stanislav Hubička a kolektiv

Year of completion: 1973

The concrete structure above Folimanka Park hides a metro line within its depths and is intertwined with a number of stories. The initial designs for bridging the park date back to 1903, but it was not until many years later that Stanislav Hubička finalized the project. Originally, an underground tram was supposed to cross the park, but it was changed to a metro line during construction. That is why passengers on Line C alight on the right side in the direction of travel at certain stations. The bridge is designed for both car and pedestrian traffic on the surface. In the 1990s, a tall railing was added due to Nusle Bridge being frequently sought out by suicides. This fact is commemorated by the monument “Z vlastního rozhodnutí” (By One’s Own Decision) created by artist Krištof Kintera – it is a lamp facing towards the sky, located in the park beneath the bridge.
