About Europa 2018 - (Stone Bridge in Tartu Stamp)

The Tartu Stone Bridge was a three-arched bridge located at the current spot of the Arched Bridge in 1784–1941. The bridge is a well-known symbol of the university town and a great example of classicist stone architecture of the 18th century. Construction on the Stone Bridge over the Emajõgi in Tartu began in 1776, after the big fire of 1775. The bridge was build according to the project of J. Carl Siegfrieden and under directions from construction engineer Johann Zaklowsky. The middle section of the bridge was made of wood and good be hoisted up in order to enable boat traffic on the river.
