How can a bridge connect to the same bank of the same river twice

It sounds impossible but you will have to believe your eyes when you visit the spectacular Kamyanets-Podilsky castle in Khmenlitsky region. This old castle is located on a rocky island wrapped by the canyon of the Smotrich River, therefore both ends of the bridge that unites the fortification with the mainland connect to the right bank of the river. Moreover, this bridge is unique because it utilises no pillars except for existing rocks. The bridge is said to have been built by the Romans back in the second century during a vicious campaign against the Dacians. The Kamyanets-Podilsky fortifications have been recognized by UNESCO as "world heritage" site.
