The Krakow Kotlarski Bridge takes name after the nearby Kotlary district and is one of the most memorable constructions over Vistula, hardly to be confused with another bridge. Opened 2002, length 166 m. The road network on the right bank is still obscure and the landscape there looks rather like a moon surface; the old and rather neglected quarter is being totally re-organized. The Kotlarski Bridge is the second widest one over Vistula, inferior only to the Warsaw Grot Rowecki Bridge. The view from the bridge is not a tourist attraction - an industrial and post-industrial areas spread around.
