The stone bridge in Bardo.
The town Bardo is located at the historical trade route between Wroclaw, Prague and Vienna, it was also part of the Amber Route. So for centuries, a bridge over the river Nysa Kłodzka (Glatzer Neisse) existed here. In the Middle Ages it was built a solid wooden bridge, but the river Neisse is very dangerous, many times in its valley there were floods which destroyed the bridge. In the historical chronicles are mentions of 60 large, devastating floods. In place of the wooden bridge, in 1589, was built a stone bridge, in 1909, it was rebuilt and reinforced. It is interesting that in 1997, the bridge resisted the 100 year-flood, when the flood wave had 11 m of height and overflowed the bridge.

Jolie mise en image de ce beau pont de pierre dont la construction a été assez solide pour résister à cette grande crue.

A tranquil scene is portrayed by the calm water, and lush green grass,but a very different one when there are floods.
An informative note - thankyou.

Intersujacy obiekt, malo znany. Swietnie zaprezentowany: piekne wiosenne kolory, dobra perspektywa i ladne nasycenie barw.
Znakomicie przygotowany i opisany dokument fotograficzny.

Wow, this looks so fresh in early summer and what an image of a stunning river scene with historic old stone bridge serves as vital link along with brightly illuminated house which is visually awesome under blue intensity of the skies. A joy to behold indeed in such luminosity, richness of colour and a charming looking sight so well shot, Congrats
