Terzijski Bridge (Serbian: Терзијски мост / Terzijski most, Turkish: Terzi Köprüsü, Albanian: Ura e Terzive), also referred to as Tailors' Bridge,[1] is located near the village of Bistražin, near Gjakova, Kosovo[a]. It is a respectable example of Ottoman architecture in Kosovo.[2] It was built over the Erenik river, probably at the end of the 15th century, and was altered in the 18th century. It is a noteworthy example of the Terzijski guild from Gjakova, from which it received its name. Major reconstruction and restoration to its original appearance occurred from 1982 to 1984. Today, the bridge is under the protection of the Republic of Kosovo, originally being declared a Monument of Culture of Exceptional Importance in 1990 within Serbia.[3]

History

It is not known when exactly the bridge was built, but it is thought to have been at the end of the 15th century. This is due to the bridge having been erected on a medieval route, which connected Gjakova with Prizren, and that the bridge was later expanded (a result of changes of flow in the river). In the 18th century it experienced major modifications, which gave it its current appearance. These works were financed by the Terzijski guild from Gjakova, confirmed by an inscription carved in Turkish.

The bridge was built with trimmed stones, in dark gray and an ocher shade. Its length exceeds 190 meters, the width of the pavement originally measuring over 3.5 meters. The bridge consists of 11 rounded arches, among which are embedded niches.

Notes

  1. ^ Kosovo is the subject of a territorial dispute between the Republic of Kosovo and the Republic of Serbia. The Republic of Kosovo unilaterally declared independence on 17 February 2008, but Serbia continues to claim it as part of its own sovereign territory. The two governments began to normalise relations in 2013, as part of the 2013 Brussels Agreement. Kosovo has been recognized as an independent state by 112 out of 193 United Nations member states, while 12 states have recognized Kosovo only to later withdraw their recognition.
