One of the architects involved in the construction of the Troja Bridge is Roman Koucký, who is also known for designing the Dlouhý Bridge in České Budějovice and the iconic Mariánský Bridge in Ústí nad Labem. The current bridge, connecting Holešovice with Troja, was built as a replacement for the so-called Rámusák, which was constructed as a temporary structure during the building of the Barikádníků Bridge in the 1980s. It served as a bypass for tram traffic across the river until 2013 when construction of the new elegant structure was underway nearby. The new Troja Bridge has received several awards in the Czech Republic and abroad. It features two traffic lanes for automobiles in each direction, tram tracks, and a sidewalk for pedestrians and cyclists. It has become a popular subject for photographers and filmmakers.
