Sweden´s longest stone arch bridge can be found in Karlstad. With its 168 meters and twelve spans, the Old Stone Bridge is a massive and immense edifice.

Its a very nice old stone bridge. Still in use. It's kind of a land mark in Karlstad. Not really anything to do with it except, well, walk on it. But it's nice :)

Longest stone bridge in Sweden. Built late 1700's still standing and being used. Nice views around, but it's just a bridge
