Long Description:

Both sides of this gold 5000 Czech Crown coin depicts Žampach railway viaduct (Žampašský most), built in 1898-1900, which is the highest stone bridge in the Czech lands and also an unique technical and architectonic monument.

Žampach viaduct is a railway arch bridge in the Czech Republic near the village of Žampach, part of Kamenný Prívoz, Prague-West District. It is the tallest stone bridge built in the Czech Republic. Viaduct spans the Kocour ("Tomcat") Valley at the height of 41.5 m. Total length of the bridge is 110 m. The axis of the bridge follows a curve of diameter 180 metres, the individual arcs span 12 metres each. The bridge was constructed between 1898-1899, with railroad transport commencing on 1 May 1900.

Viaduct is located on track 210 (Vrané nad Vltavou – Cercany) between Luka pod Medníkem and Jílové u Prahy stations. The bridge, daily used by many trains, has yet to show any signs of damage.
