The bridge on the Moštanica is one of the most interesting antique monuments in the Nikšić area. This bridge has stone foundations, while the other parts are made of tufa, which was typical for the Roman bridge construction technique. At one point, the bridge construction bends like a pipe, which gave rise to the story that the Turks called it “The Pipe Bridge” because of this arched curve. The bridge was renovated after World War Two, and recently during 2015 and 2017. The Post of Montenegro, within the edition Europe – Bridges, The Bridge on the Moštanica, is publishing a commemorative postage stamp, block and First Day Cover. The author of the design is Zorana Tošić, a painter from Podgorica.
