Around 200 people blocked Prague’s Libeň Bridge on Wednesday evening in protest at plans from the city authorities to demolish and replace the structure. The demonstrators also said a new bridge should not be commissioned, as the city envisages, without an architecture competition.
The demonstration lasted several minutes. Some people protested from beneath the bridge in kayaks.
Libeň Bridge dates from 1928 and features elements of Cubist architecture.
