Radošov Bridge on the Ohře River was built over a ford through which King John of Luxembourg first entered Bohemia in 1310. In 1364, his son Emperor Charles IV granted the town of Ostrov (upon the Ohře River) the right to build a bridge on the site and to collect duties on rare goods imported by land, particularly from Rhineland. The trail is first mentioned in 1220. Even if the bridge was damaged by fire a number of times, it was always restored. However, the unique wooden bridge was almost completely destroyed within a few hours by a devastating fire in 1986.

In 2000 and 2001, the municipality of Kyselka, using funds from its own resources and from a public fundraiser, commenced with the preparation of project works aimed at the restoration of the historical wooden bridge, and it was finally reopened, after many long years, on 17 October 2003.
