This is the Shallow bridge on Krajnaske Hora, West Carpathians. The bridge was built 300 + years ago and over time has been built, and rebuilt until nothing now remains of the original structure. The strange thing is that the bridge really isn’t needed as a short way up the hill the banks of the stream flatten out and make easy crossing. So why was the bridge built. and why is it still being maintained by locals despite it’s uselessness? I am not sure, but the footpath itself is very old and leads up to ‘the Clearing’ - which is mentioned in my book The Lament of Doctor Ladislav Horvath - an ancient Pagan site a further half hour walk from the bridge. Some say that the blood of animals sacrificed was sluiced down the hill via this wee stream to soak the fields in the valley below, and that none crossing the stream dared put a foot in to the waters.
The little orange blob at the bottom is no apparition but my 6 year old son leaving a gift (a half eaten apple) for the troll he was convinced lived under the bridge. :)
