After 1919, the Prussian railway bridge in Opalenie near Kwidzyn/Marienwerder became a bridge leading to nowhere, standing on the Polish/German border. It was dismantled and re-assembled in Torun in 1934. Initially it was 884 m long; during the reconstruction after WWII damages it was prolonged to 1004 m. Stands in the midst of the city and attracts heavy local traffic, but also passenger transit on the main Polish North-South road. 9 piers, great view on the medieval city of Torun/Thorn. Like one of the Krakow bridges, named after Marshall Pilsudski.
