Valja prerast

Location: the municipality of Majdanpek

A perfect bridge without chisel and hammer.

Valja prerast is the biggest natural stone bridge in Serbia with the span of 150 m. This impressive example of natural civil engineering found the shelter for its beauty at the bottom of Rudna Glava, some 10 km away from Majdanpek. It is unique in that it did not come to be by the collapse of the cave; instead, the river of the same name that ripples underneath patiently built it for centuries. With the height of 44.8 m and the width at the bottom of 9.7 m it dominates the surroundings in all its beauty, especially when you see the sun beneath it in the afternoon.
