The New Bridge - Nový most

The New Bridge
Constructed between 1967 and 1972 across the Danube river, the New Bridge – also known as the SNP Bridge, after the Slovak National Uprising – is perhaps the city's most distinctive structure. Its designers, J. Lacko and A. Tesar, decided to suspend the steel deck of the bridge from a single pylon.
At the top of the pylon, at a height of 80 metres, is a restaurant connected to the bridge itself via an inclined high-speed lift housed within one of the pylon's columns, as well as via an emergency staircase with 430 steps inside the other column. The bridge is 431.8m long and 21m wide. The total mass of the steel structure, including the pylon, is 7,537 tons.
