POI BRIEF DESCRIPTION
Description of the POI
Connecting Gornji and Donji Kosinj, Kosinj Bridge is a 70-meter-long stone bridge that crosses the Lika. It was designed in the 19th century by Milivoj Frković and built according to the old Croatian bridge-building technique. The bridge is specific because of its openings in the arches whose function is to relieve the impact of the waves on the bridge, which is important as there are often floods in the area. In 2009, the bridge was acknowledged for its construction uniqueness by the European Council of Civil Engineers.
