What travelers say:

The bridge is really a very short old bridge, connecting two buildings, the bridge is very short, completely closed, arched structure, boats can also shuttle through here, very suitable for a visit and play with an interesting foreground landscape.

Additional Information


Today, custom holds that lovers should kiss under the bridge in order to seal their fate as soul mates. Oddly, the bridge got its name from the sullen prisoners' exasperations as they were ferried across the bridge, from the prison to the courts. Despite its somber purpose, the bridge actually looks very romantic from the outside-- perfect for a great photo.
