Just above Zois's Mansion the single-arch stone Devil's bridge rises high above the deep gorge of the Mostnica River.
The bridge crossing the Mostnica river was a challenging construction undertaking. It was built in a single arch of hewn stone and placed over the deep gorge. By building the bridge, Žiga Zois improved the system of iron ore and charcoal supply routes from the surrounding mountains to the iron ore plant that used to be situated next to the Zois Mansion and Pretovka Stream which you can still see on your way to the Devil’s Bridge.
