TARA BRIDGE

We stopped for a while near famous concrete Djurdjevica Tara Bridge. Bridge was built between 1937 and 1940 over the one the deepest canyons in the world, that time it was the biggest concrete arch bridge in Europe. It was blown up in 1942 by Partisan’s looking to block an Italian-Chetnik offensive. A bridge engineer, Lazar Jaukovic, aided in the span’s demise was eventually captured by the Italians and executed on the bridge. The bridge was rebuilt after World War II in 1946.
