The bridge has been on the list of the Czech cultural monuments since 1989, becoming a national cultural monument in 1998.
It is sometimes called the Stag Bridge because, according to legend, it was to be named after the first being to pass over it. At the time, Písek was surrounded by deep woods, so the first being to cross the bridge was a stag. However, most local people still call it the Old Bridge (starý most).
It spans the Otava River, a tributary of the Vltava River.
The length of the bridge is 109.75m and the width 6.25m. It is built on six pillars and has seven arches and gives the impression of a "small" Charles Bridge.
The bridge became an important link on the Golden Trail, which connected the Baltic areas with the Mediterranean and imported salt from Bavaria to the Písek salt store.
