The Arched Bridge in Quba
The Gudyalchay arched bridge is the only extant bridge of the seven that existed in Guba region from the 17th-19th centuries. This lengthy bridge was built in 1894 and designed by Alexander III to strengthen Russia’s military presence in the Caucasus.
It is 275 metres long and its 14 spans, 8 metres in width, were built of baked brick.
The multiple span construction has preserved the bridge even through strong mud flows and flooding that raise the water level. This 19th century bridge is the only one of this design in Azerbaijan.
