“Woooooooooooow” that was my first word when I saw those gigantic twin bridges. Both bridges are 36 m high and 200 m long, but from the bottom they look really Higher. I felt like a gnom in front of them. Historical source says that bridges where designed and build by Italian architects in years 1907-1926. They supposed to be a part of very important Germans military railway line. During last years of the first world war lot of bridges like “Stanczyki” viaducts where bombed. Twin bridges survived only because railway line was not finished till outbreak of WWI.

That day when I was visiting twin bridges lot of tourist where there. Of course mostly of them had photo cameras. It was funny to watch how day where going back from the bridges, looking through the range finder and trying to squeeze both bridges in one frame. Luckily I had my fisheye2 with me and did not had any problems like others. So if you ever gone plan to visit gigantic twin viaduct in “Stanczyki” and want to make some nice pictures, you better grab a fisheye camera or LC-A with a wide – angle lens with you.
