The bridge was built in 1853, by the Montenegrin Prince Danilo, who erected the bridge in memory of his father Stanko Petrović. On the left side of the river, next to the bridge, Danilo I also built a one-storey house, popularly called Mostina. Danilo's bridge is a double-arched limestone bridge. Its total length is 43 meters. Danilo's bridge replaced the previous wooden bridge across the river, which was built by his predecessor Petar II Petrović-Njegoš.
