Bridge of Helenendorf

The bridge of Helenendorf is situated over the river Gandzak, 5 kilometres north-east of Voskanapat Village, Khanlar District, Northern Artsakh, a region that suffered deportation of its Armenian population in 1988 and has been annexed to Azerbaijan since then. It represents a three-span structure of the 19th century that was erected in the site of an older bridge—most presumably, still standing as of the Middle Ages—by masters invited from the neighbouring Armenian-inhabited villages.
