Kanuni Bridge

Kanuni Bridge (Turkish: Kanuni Köprüsü), aka Palace Bridge for Saray Köprüsü, is a historic Ottoman bridge in Edirne, Turkey. It crosses the Tunca river, connecting Edirne Palace with the city. It is named after Suleiman the Lawmaker (Turkish: Kanuni Sultan Süleyman), the Turkish name for the sultan, who commissioned the construction.

Built in 1554 by the Ottoman master architect Mimar Sinan for the Ottoman sultan Suleiman the Magnificent (r. 1520–1566), the 60-metre-long (200 ft) and 4.50-metre-wide (14.8 ft) bridge has four arches..
