The Žďákov Bridge, which runs across South Bohemia’s Orlík Dam, was the longest structure of its kind in the world when it went into operation in the mid-1960s. The audacious construction was inspired in part by the success enjoyed by Czechoslovak architecture and design at the 1958 World’s Fair and reflected a move away from Socialist Realism.
