About Trajan's Bridge

The bridge was build between 103-105, by Apollodorus of Damascus (a  favorite architect of Roman Emperor Trajan).

Trajan's Bridge had the purpose to transport and to supply  troops , from the southern shore (of the Pontes camp  in Serbia) to the northern shore (to the Drobeta camp  in Romania) to the two military campaigns, to conquer Dacia, led by King Decebal.

The bridge had a length of 1.135 m, width 18 m, height 12 m and a total of 20 stone pillars.

It was considered an architectural greatness during Antiquity.

The bridge was destroyed by the Roman Empire in 275 AD (the permanent abandonment of Dacia) to protect the north of Moesia from the invasion of barbarian tribes from the north.

Today remained only two pillars, the first and last, on the banks of the Danube.
