The well-known Japanese car company Mazda just filmed a new commercial in Croatia – a promotional video for the Mazda CX-5, filmed for the needs of the German market. The commercial begins with a shot of stone, seventy-meter long bridge over the River Lika.
It is, of course, the Kosinj bridge connecting Gornji and Donji Kosinj.
Kosinj Bridge was built according to the old Croatian bridge building technique. The bridge is unique with its openings in the arches whose function is to relieve the impact of the waves on the bridge, while being, at the same time, outlined in the water as symmetrical circles.
The firm Christiani & Nielsen constructed a very slender and light arch bridge with underlying deck and L = 143 m span over the Lot at Castelmoron, Lot-etGaronne, France, fig.46, based on the design by O.F. Nielsen. The construction of the bridge began in 1929. In 1936, it was opened to traffic.
