The historic viaduct located in a beautiful natural environment between Kopráš and Mníšany (the local part of the village of Magnezitovce) is one of the valuable technical monuments of the so-called “Gemersky spojky”. Gemers’ clutches were a complex of railway lines that were supposed to replace the old railway connections interrupted by the forced withdrawal of a large part of Slovakia to Hungary before World War II. As a result of the later return of these territories, they were not completed and not used. The vaulted viaduct, 120 long and 36 meters high, is beautifully landscaped and remarkably reminds of the much more familiar Chmaroš Viaduct near Telgárt. Since no means of transport pass through it, it is suitable for walking or cycling. The bridge is accessible from the village of Magnezitovce and its visit can be connected with the crossing of nearby Koprášský and Slavošovský tunnels, which lie on the same unfinished railway route.
