26 August 2019 - A stunning photograph of the Đurđevića Tara Bridge, as a well-known landmark in Montenegro, is featured in the Windows Spotlight, a Windows 10 lock screen slideshow service.
Windows Spotlight is a feature included by default in Windows 10 that downloads pictures and advertisements automatically from Bing and displays them when the lock screen is being shown on a computer running Windows 10. Users are occasionally allowed to mark whether they wish to see more or fewer images of a similar type, and sometimes the images are overlaid with links to advertisements. In 2017, Microsoft began adding location information for many of the photographs.
For most of the images, no photo credits are available, but some do display information about where the picture was taken. Many are of well-known locations, or famous historic or natural landmarks, and therefore can be identified.
One of the identified images is the photograph of the remarkable Đurđevića Tara Bridge.
Tara is a river that flows through Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina. The total length of the river is 144 km, of which 104 km is in Montenegro, making it the longest river in the country. When describing the river, Montenegrins like to emphasize that the Tara is wild, capricious, and the most beautiful and cleanest river in Europe! The cleanliness of the river is recognized internationally, and that is how the Tara got its glory as “the tear of Europe”.
Đurđevića Tara Bridge is a concrete arch bridge over the Tara River in northern Montenegro. It is located at the crossroads between Mojkovac, Žabljak and Pljevlja, between the villages of Budečevica and Trešnjica. Built between 1937 and 1940, Tara Bridge represents one of the most visited landmarks in Montenegro. The bridge offers a magnificent and unique view of the surrounding mountains and untouched nature. Back when the Tara Bridge was first built in the 1940s, it was the most prominent vehicular concrete arch bridge in Europe. Even today, renowned architects and engineers from all over the world come to Montenegro to admire this beautiful structure.
No wonder Microsoft has decided to spread this stunning image of Đurđevića Tara Bridge around the world for everyone to admire.
