Wooden bridge in Cernvir

The wooden bridge across the river Svratka in the middle of the village of Cernvír near Tišnov dates from 1718. The wooden beam construction supported by stone pillars is covered by a shingle saddleback. The historical road to Pernštejn castle led across this bridge until 1839; today the bridge is only used by pedestrians.
