Viaducts in Stanczyki
Often poetically called “Viaducts of the North”, two majestic bridges reminiscent of Roman aqueducts, are situated on the edge of Romincka Forest.
Their size is impressive: 180cm long and 31,5m high, with the height measured from the surface of the river Będzianki flowing underneath.
They used to be a part of railway line connecting Gołdap with Żytkiejmy (Eastern Prussia with Krolewiec) One of the parallel bridges was built before the break-out of World War I and the construction of the second one was completed only in 1926.
They are perfectly parallel to each other. Their ideal proportions, classic acrches and slender pillars seem to confirm the statement that they were designed by Italian architects.
