From the architect. The bridge built over the Sava canyon at Bled is intended for hikers - so that hikers can stop for a moment, experience new views, become aware of nature, breathe with the water, glance at the reflection of the moving stars at night and hear the river murmuring. It is a bridgewhere the world stops for a moment. A slight inclination, not easily perceptible, a shift in the axis of motion, a subtle backward surge - its motion being checked by the ends of the bridge on each side - and in an audacious trajectory the bridgeleaps from one bank to another.
