The Old Bridge over the Ribnica (Montenegrin: Stari most na Ribnici Стари мост на Рибници) is the oldest bridge in Podgorica, the capital city of Montenegro. It spans the Ribnica river, near its confluence with the Morača. The bridge was built during the period of Roman rule and underwent a major reconstruction in the 18th century AD.[1] The reconstruction was funded by Adži-paša Osmanagić and, since then, the bridge is also known as Adži-paša's bridge (Montenegrin: Adži-pašin most Аџи-пашин мост).[2]
