Gorgopotamos bridge

A nice scenery with an interesting history.
On a rare cooperation between the leftish and rightish partisan groups during the German occupation of 1941-1945, this railway bridge over Gorgopotamos (litterally "fast river") was blown up. The operation was organized by British saboteurs and disrupted the main route of supplies of the Nazis between the North and the South of Greece.
