Par tilta un ta apkartnes kulturvesturisko nozimi liecina ari tas, ka tiltam ir ticis pieškirts jaunatklata kulturas pieminekla statuss. Latvija šis ir viens no retajiem, ja ne vienigais koka atgažnu sistemas konstrukcijas tilts, turklat tas atrodas viegli atrodama un erti pieejama vieta.

Large wooden bridge across the river Riva is a fairly unique phenomenon in Latvia. Here once drove across the old Liepaja-Ventspils railway. Built in 20th the first half of the century. (Restored and opened on the 25th of may 2002.)

In Europe, wooden bridges with brace system has been known in the Middle Ages. There are strict European standarts for this reason road and building exsperts say that the wooden bridges have lost their significance nowadays However, road and bridge building exsperts admit, that chronicled hundreds of years of tradition should be preserved in memory as carpentry and engineering skills of proof. The bridge and its surroundings is also evidenced by the historical and cultural significance and it has been newly assigned in cultural monument status. In Latvia this is one of the rare, maybe the only wooden bridge with brace system design, it is in easily found and freely accessible area.

From the top side of the river had been made a dam and it`s energy used at the beginning of the century for the mills and woolen card operation. The waterfall of the storage lake, the beautiful valley of Riva river and the historic Rivas river bridge - this natural and cultural sightseeing object perfectly includes with the parish and the region of Kurzeme tourism routes.
