The scenic Krk bridge on the Croatian Adriatic Sea
Krk bridge is a very scenic reinforced concrete arch bridge, located on the northern Adriatic Sea, in Croatia. It’s one of the most spectacular bridges of the world.
The bridge (Krčki most) carries the paved D102 state road. It’s 1.430m long and connects the mainland to the country's biggest island of Krk. The area where the bridge is built is open from the northern side, and it is subject to the strong gusts of bora, sometimes causing bridge closure.
The bridge is 67 meters high and was built between 1976 and 1980. At the time of construction, it was the largest bridge of its kind in the world. It opened in July 1980. In 2020, Croatia scrapped the toll tax on the bridge. It carries over a million vehicles per year. The bridge was originally named Titov most ("Tito's bridge") in honor of Yugoslav president Josip Broz Tito, who had died two months earlier.
