There are 19 bridges in the small town that cross the Põltsamaa River, connect the banks with river islands, or cross the moat. The newest ofnthem are the Church Hill (Parvei) Bridge – a suspension bridge built in 2006 at a former bridge location – and Särstu Bridge near the Rose islet. Four bridges cross the river and only one of them (Great Bridge) can be crossed by car. In 2013, the Great Bridge dam was renovated and a modern fish ladder was built there (it has been called the construction of the century in Põltsamaa).
The tour can be started on any bridge and you can visit the bridges in any order!
