ARDAHAN (AA) – In Ardahan, a new suspension bridge was built over the Kura River, replacing the wooden bridge that was destroyed by the Russians in 1877, connecting the city to each other.

Ardahan Castle, the historical Ardahan Bridge, the Nation’s Garden and the suspension bridge built at the point that sees the Bungalows, while remembering the history, added beauty to the Kura River and its region.

At the entrance of the suspension bridge, where historical and natural beauties meet, the photograph of Atatürk’s silhouette, formed by the shadow of the next hill, was placed on the skirts of Karadağlar in Damal district.

Tourists are expected to be interested in the region with the completion of the project, which is built in harmony with nature and the landscaping continues.

Ardahan Mayor Faruk Demir told Anadolu Agency (AA) that they have colored the banks of the Kura River for the first time with this and similar works.

Stating that the river revitalizes the regions it passes through, Demir said, “The Kura is a river of peace. Just as this river makes its routes beautiful while passing through Georgia and Azerbaijan, it should also beautify our region. Because this is where it was born. Therefore, our work is carried out accordingly. This is the place where it was born. With the completion of other works, it will be a complete valley of life.” he said.

Demir stated that the bridge was built with the contributions of philanthropic businessman Sabri Erdoğan and thanked him.

Expressing that they owe a lot to the Kura River with its contribution to both energy and the environment, Demir said, “We owe this river a lot. It’s good for us no matter how much we serve. It has been feeding us for years. It also produces energy.” said.

Stating that there is also pain in the river, Demir said:

“In the Ottoman-Russian war, the wooden bridge of that period was shot down by the Russians and our citizens on it lost their lives. This is the first time such a bridge has been built here in a century. This was our destiny. Every year we commemorate those who lost their lives in this region, we leave carnations in the Kura River. Today, we are happy to sign such a work.”
