Mostar, Famous "Old Bridge"-Bosnia & Herzegovina
Destroyed during 1990's civil war, but rebuolt in early 2000's. This

Located in a picturesque valley of the Herzegovinian mountains, Mostar is an extremely beautiful and historic city. Its iconic image and most visited site is Stari Most, or Old Bridge, which was added to UNESCO's World Heritage List in 2005. This impressive piece of engineering, which dates back to 1565, spans across the icy cold Neretva River that winds through the city.

I think Karun III bridge in Iran is also more than 550 meters long:

The arch is only 236 m (when I said longest arch bridge - I mean by span), less than half that of the Chinese ones. For example the Chaotianmen Bridge arch is 552m, but its overall length is 1.7 km.
