The Bridges of Solkan - Bungee Jumping in Slovenia

The bridges of Solkan are situated near Nova Gorica in western Slovenia. It is almost exactly on the Slovinian-Italian border. Solkan is part of the Nova Gorica town with a special status. There are actually two bridges over the Soca river close to each other. Adrex.com is the first server that provides the correct information about the area focusing on Bungee jumping from the bridges.

The first (and older) Solkan Bridge is a 220 metre long arch bridge with arch span its of 85 metres, it is the second-longest stone bridge in the world and the longest stone bridge among train bridges. It was originally built between 1900 and 1905, and officially opened in 1906. The second - Solkan road bridge - was finally completed in 1985 and it is a bridge for the road towards the hills of Goriška Brda. With its height of 55 meters, Solkan Road Bridge is the only Bungee center in Slovenia. It means that all the jumps take place here, and NOT on the old (and the most photographed) stone rail-bridge.
