Grunwaldzki Bridge is a suspension bridge over the River Oder in Wrocław, Poland, built over the years 1908-1910. Initially the bridge was called the Imperial Bridge (Kaiserbrücke), then the Bridge of Freedom (Freiheitsbrücke). Architectural designer of the bridge was a city councilor, Richard Plüddemann. The bridge opened on 10 October 1910 in the presence of Emperor Wilhelm II.
It is one of the longest bridges of its kind in Poland being 112.5 meters long, 18 meters wide and weighing 2.3 thousand tons. It was constructed of Silesian granite.
The bridge was damaged during World War II but by September 1947 it had been repaired and was opened again. Across the bridge currently go the national road 98 and tram lines. - in: wikipedia
