VIDEO: Visiting the Endless Stone Bridge Uzunkopru, Turkey

Join David’s Been Here during its explorations around Turkey as David presents Uzunkopru. Translating to “Long Bridge”, this Ottoman commissioned bridge is the longest stone bridge in Turkey, stretching 4,360 feet long and 22 feet wide. Built between 1426 and 1443 under Sultan Murad II, this 174 arch-bridge is a fantastic, picturesque stop and great day trip for anyone traveling around Edirne. Built to connect the Balkans with the Ottoman Peninsula, this bridge still stands sound today spanning the once dividing Ergene River.

A special thanks to Go Turkey for their support.
