Devil's Bridge in Torzhke
Russia

For the construction of the giant structures used huge stones. They fell heavily on one another without any material fastened. The construction firm is just on its own weight. The bridge consists of a 5-arch spans, spill over across the pond. It is similar by Alpine famous Devil's Bridge, which made his famous crossing commander Suvorov. Vasilevskiy Devil's Bridge is famous not only for its size and unique design. Filming a scene of collision of two armies of the blockbuster «Night Watch» took place on that bridge.
