Veresk Bridge

The Veresk bridge (Varisk) in Iran was constructed during the reign of Reza Shah. It is located in Veresk district of Savadkooh county, in Mazanadarn province.
During World War II, it was known as the Pol-e-Piroozi, or the bridge of victory. The bridge is at an elevation of 110 m and its arch measures 66 m in length. The bridge is one of the masterpieces of the Danish engineering firm Kampsax, serving the Trans-Iranian Railway network in Northern Iran.

Both bridges are absolutely gorgeous and real feats of engineering. Are you studing structural engineering? I work in aerospace with some Iranian engineers who emigrated here in the '80's.
