Introduction:
Bridges have long served as a means of connection between people. Whether they are long or short, wide or narrow, all bridges serve a purpose. It is time to show off the best bridges of Eastern Europe!

In this thread, we will vote for our favorite bridges.

Voting Guidelines:
  1. Each member has to vote for exactly five (5) nominees on the list. Do not vote for any less, or any more. There are no exceptions! The votes of whoever chooses to disregard this rule will be omitted from the final count.
  2. Do your best to vote as honestly and fairly as possible, putting all of your biases aside. This does not mean that, for example, you cannot vote for your city/country. It means that you should vote for the nominees that you think truly deserve to be in the top league.
  3. Review all of the pictures posted for the nominations, even if you think you remember all of them from the nominations thread. This will refresh them in your mind, allowing you to make a wiser choice.

I think the Karlov most looks great, but it is second after the Széchenyi Lánchíd.
and I like the Dubrovnik bridge, really well done IMO

Ufff...some hard choices.
Number one, for me, is Széchenyi Lánchíd in Budapest, destroyed by Germans at the end of World War II, then rebuilt with cement donated from Serbia.

My list:

1# Széchenyi Lánchíd (Budapest, Hungary)
2# Stari Most (Mostar, Bosnia)
3# Karlov Most (Prague, Czech Republic)
4# Visegrad Bridge/Na Drini Cuprija (Visegrad, Bosnia)
5# Franjo Tudjman Bridge (Dubrovnik, Croatia)

Shame on you for not reading the rules.

Nominating Guidelines:
  1. Note: a venue is a place where an event such as a sports competition or a concert is held, especially one where events are often held. We are not looking for opera theatres, or outdoor stadiums.
  2. Make sure to include the official name of the nomination, as well as where it is located - city, and country.
  3. All nominations require pictures to accompany them. Post pictures only, not links to websites with pictures. Post only the best pictures that represent your nomination accurately, and in the best way possible. Avoid posting large pictures or panoramas, instead include links to them.
  4. Only two (2) nominees per country are allowed. Therefore, choose only the most distinctive, exceptional nominees. Basically, the best in the country! It's a good idea to discuss the nominations with your fellow countrymen, and posters, so that everyone comes to an agreement about what should be nominated. If more nominees are posted per country, only the first two will be considered.
    [*]Since there are only 15 spots on the poll, the first 15 valid nominations will be submitted. To avoid disappointment, post your nominations as early as possible. To make sure that your nominations are not late, you can even post the nomination without any pictures first, and edit your post later. Another suggestion is to edit your old posts, instead of creating new posts, so you can keep your original position.
  5. The guidelines are here to make sure that everyone enjoys this installation, while keeping it fair - please follow them.
  6. Enjoy! :)
