The Old Main Bridge in Würzburg, Bavaria

If you have been to Prague, Czech Republic, you might be able to see a bridge that almost resembles the Old Main Bridge in Würzburg, a lovely city in the state of Bavaria (Bayern in German) in Germany.

The Old Main Bridge, called in German as Alte Mainbrücke, was built on 1473–1543 to replace the destroyed Romanesque bridge from 1133. This impressive bridge was adorned from 1730 on in two phases with well-known statues of saints and famous persons.

I have been to this city for a lot of times and always love to come back from time to time. Here are some snapshots I took during one of my visits there.
