Uzunkopru, The Largest Stone Bridge in the World

http://davidsbeenhere.com Join David's Been Here during its explorations around Turkey as David presents Uzunkopru. Translating to "Long Bridge", this Ottoman commissioned bridge is the longest stone bridge in Turkey, stretching 4,360 feet long and 22 feet wide. Built between 1426 and 1443 under Sultan Murad II, this 174 arch-bridge is a fantastic, picturesque stop and great day trip for anyone traveling around Edirne. Built to connect the Balkans with the Ottoman Peninsula, this bridge still stands sound today spanning the once dividing Ergene River. Visit this historic, world-class structure with the David's Been Here Guide to Turkey, now available for your Kindle as well.
