which takes you to the Upper square.
The bridge was built by bishop Leopold in the middle of the 14th century.
The fate wanted that the same bishop, riding across the fenceless bridge, together with his startled horse fell from the bridge and got drowned in the water.
The bridge was built from carved stone in the semicircular form.
It was restored in the year 1888 and equipped with iron fence.
