The Gothic bridge in Kłodzko
In Kłodzko you can find a Lower Silesian Charles Bridge, which is something of a equivalent of that one in Prague. The bridge that we are talking about is the Gothic Bridge, known as St. John’s bridge, or more commonly, „The bridge on the eggs”. That’s all because of the materials used to create it. Back then, people used to build bridges of a mixture made from lime, sand and eggs.
