The bridge of Plaka, is considered as the biggest single-arch bridge in the Balkans, with 40m arch span and 21m height. It was built in 1866 by the master builder Kostas Bekas, after two unsuccessful attempts by other builders. The bridge is considered among the most difficult single arch bridges to build. During 1881-1912 when Arachthos River was the border between Greece and Turkey there was in a short distance an outpost of the Greek army and customs. Today the bridge is the starting point for rafting or canoeing on Arachthos River.
