This masterpiece in the construction of bridges appeared immediately after the strong Venetian attack on Ulcinj in 1696 in order to use it for getting help in people and technique for the town, if necessary. It is believed that the bridge was built by masons from the school of the famous mimar Рbuilder Sinan.  For a long time this monumental construction had had a primarily military significance, and until present it has kept its traffic significance.
