In 1928, Zadar got its first bridge. It had a pavement and pedestrian sidewalk on both sides, and its opening enabled boat traffic with bay of Jazina. The bombing of the city destroyed a bridge in 1944, and in its place in 1949 a provisional pontoon bridge was built on tin gas bottles. This bridge was a little bit unsafe, especially during strong wind. And finally, in 1962, with the great folk celebration, a bridge that you see here today was built.
Its beauty is especially highlighted at night when the bridge is illuminated.
The old unwritten Zadar rule says that you should cross the bridge without stopping. But of course, for tourists who want to enjoy a walk and a wonderful view, that rule is not valid.
