Yellow bridge

Ćuprija got its name from the Turkish word that means bridge.

Given that the entire town is located on the right bank of the Great Morava River and that the Ravanica River flows through it, which flows into the Great Morava, it is quite logical that Ćuprija has more bridges.

Some of them have historical significance, some are the result of traffic infrastructure, but all of them are very attractive for the visitors of our Ćuprija.

On the approach to Ćuprija, downstream from the new railway bridge, towards the mouth of the Ravanica river, you can see the remains of the "Latin bridge", the "Turkish bridge", and then six more bridges, before coming across the iron bridge from 1922, which due to its color called "Yellow Bridge".

During the 18th century, the Austro-Hungarian government was in Ćuprija for a while, but there is no evidence that they built bridges on the Velika Morava. Only much later, as war reparations, the steel construction of the bridge arrived from Austria, which replaced the construction of the wooden bridge, the current "ŽUĆKO".

During the 19th century, several wooden and pontoon bridges were built. All of them were located downstream from the mouth of the Ravanica river, on the road from Jagodina.

Because of all the above, one of the symbols of our city is the MOST, after which many organizations, associations and sports clubs are named, and for which we are known in the country and beyond.

Our story about the "Yellow Bridge" could take several pages, but there are no such picturesque words that could describe the experience in its immediate surroundings.
At the place where the iron "Žućko" now stands, there was a wooden bridge that was built in 1891, and the Velika Morava destroyed it in an ice flood on February 9, 1914. A temporary solution was a pontoon bridge that was built after the end of the WWI.
