      "Covered Bridge" - a kind of symbol of the Bulgarian town of Lovech. Covered Bridge was built by the architect Kolyo Ficheto beginning in 1876 at the request of residents of the city, after the old bridge was destroyed by a flood. In the construction of "covered bridge with trade shops "involved nearly all the inhabitants of the city - the poor worked on the construction, and the rich to finance the work.

      The bridge had a stone field, but he was made of wood, which selected the architect for the building in person.
