Veresk Bridge

Mazandaran Province

The Veresk Bridge ( Varisk ) in Iran was constructed during the reign of king Reza Shah,1930’s. It is located in Veresk, district of Savad Kooh county, in Mazandaran province.
During World War II after occupation of Iran, it was known as the Pol-e-Piroozi, or the Bridge of Victory because of the major role it played for the Allies, supplying vital requirements to the former Soviet Unions. The bridge is at an elevation of 110 m, its arch measures 66 m in length. The bridge is one of the masterpieces of the Danish engineering firm Kampsax, designed by an Austrian engineer called Walter Inger, who wanted to be buried at Veresk area after his death and is now buried in there.
The bridge serves the Trans-Iranian Railway network in northern Iran.

A great bridge indeed and probably scary to cross - can you take pictures from the bridge?

I was born in veresk . My father was the only Doctor in the area for 30 years and my brother took his job after he was retired for another 30 years. Most all people in the regen know us.
