.:Light beneath-Branko's Bridge:. by Piroshki-Photography .:Light beneath-Branko's Bridge:. by Piroshki-Photography
    Branko's bridge (Serbian: Бранков мост/Brankov most) is the second-largest bridge (after Gazela) of Belgrade, Serbia, connecting the city center with New Belgrade across Sava river. The bridge was built in 1957, replacing the former chain-stayed King Aleksandar I (built by the Société de Construction des Batignolles) bridge that was opened on December 16, 1934 and blown up in 1941. It is 450 m long, made as continuous steel box girder, with central span of 261 m and side spans of 81.5 m each. It is crossed by nearly 90,000 vehicles daily.
    About name of the bridge:
    The name of the bridge is unofficial, and seems to owe it to a bizarre chain of events.
    Its official name during the communist rule was "Brotherhood and unity bridge" (Most bratstva i jedinstva), but that name never caught up: it was called "bridge in Branko's street" (named after Branko Radičević, Serbian romanticist poet) or "Savski most" (Sava bridge).
    However, when another writer, Branko Ćopić, committed a suicide by jumping from the bridge in 1984, the current name started circulating and eventually caught up.
