This beautiful old bridge is stunning! Linking spa island with the town centre of Piestany it reminds me of a British seaside town pier. Well worth a stroll across.

A walk over the bridge brings you onto a beautiful peaceful park. The river near the bridge has more swans than ive ever seen in my life!! Grab a fantastic 30p icecream and grab a relaxing afternoon! Love Piestany.
