Stone railway bridge


Address:

Vorokhta town, Yaremche city council

Description:

 

The largest in Ukraine and one of the largest arch bridges, viaducts in Europe

 

The viaduct appearance, a true architectural wonder of the late XIX-early XX century, is linked to the construction of railways in the Carpathians. The railroad Stanyslaviv (Ivano-Frankivsk nowadays) – Nadvirna – Voronenko was developed in 1894 with adjoining line Dilove – Yasinia – Voronenko from Transcarpathian region. Thus the railway of about 135 km long was formed, which, according to the preliminary idea, had to become a straight railroad through the Carpathian mountains to the capital of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy – Vienna. This scenario implementation was prevented by the First World War and another division of the land between the countries. But, it was due to the construction of the railway, that Vorokhta village became the famous Polish ski resort later.

The bridge of about 130 m long designed by the engineers S. Kosinski and Z. Kulka was built in 1894-1895, and the length of one of its arches is 65 m.

There are four more railway viaducts, built over a hundred years ago, that have remained in the Western Ukraine: two in the Ternopil region near Terebovlia (Krovynka and Plebanivka villages) and two near Lavochne village in Lviv region.
