The Devil’s Bridge / Description

The Devil’s Bridge was built in 1913 in honour of the 300th jubilee of tsarist Russia’s Romanov Dynasty, which is memorialized on the bridge by the dates 1613-1913.
The bridge is dedicated to Emperor Alexander I, who signed the founding treaty for the tsarist university - the second official opening of Tartu University, and whose embossed relief decorates the bridge side facing Vallikraavi Street.
Like the Angels´s bridge, its name might also come from a a play of words - it was built under the supervision Werner Maximillian Friedrich Zoege von Manteuffel, whose surname in German translates to "Man-devil".
