The Golden Bridge that was opened in Vietnam this year became the hit of the internet within several days. Many people couldn’t believe that the construction depicted in many photos was real. And they are right because it’s really hard to imagine that there could be a mountain bridge located at cloud level and supported by 2 giant human palms.
we decided to remember what other unique and unbelievably fantastic bridges are there in the world.
1. On the hands, Vietnam
Golden Bridge has become the main place of interest in Da Nang City, Vietnam. It was instantly loved by visitors thanks to its unique construction — 2 giant hands support the bridge. Both hands look realistically ancient.
According to designers, there should be an illusion that the hands of God are lifting this golden strip right out of the ground. And according to visitors, these impressive sculptures amaze everyone with their design, the skill that was required to build them, and the ingenuity it took to execute this idea.
2. In the sky, Malaysia
Sky bridge leads nowhere and doesn’t connect anything. It was constructed as part of an initiative started by the Malaysian government to attract tourists.
Thanks to its unique construction, the bridge is supported by only one steel pylon and 8 cables. It’s managed to fulfill its function and continues to attract many visitors. Also it regularly appears on lists of the best attractions of its kind.
3. Across the ocean, China
The graceful S-shape of the bridge, which makes it look gorgeous in photos, was made for safety reasons. Unlike straight roads, drivers on this curvy highway must stay alert because they have to concentrate on turns.
4. Through a forest, Canada
The bridge is amazing because of the fact that a part of its route goes up to the level of the treetops, which brings this walk through the forest to another, more magical level. This feeling is even stronger at Christmas when the trees are covered with snow and lit up by many lights.
5. Reflection, Germany
Rakotzbrücke Devil’s Bridge is famous for its arc that reflects in the water and creates a perfect circle from a certain angle. This place is surrounded by a mystical aura and the bridge itself can’t be walked on.
The entrance to the bridge is closed not for mystical, but for safety reasons because it was built for aesthetical and not utilitarian purposes.
6. Above the waterfall, USA
Benson Bridge is famous for its unique and picturesque location. It was built over the lower cascade of a large waterfall in order to provide the best view of the upper cascade.
According to an ancient Indian legend, Multnomah Falls appeared after the daughter of the leader jumped from the cliff sacrificing herself to the spirits for the sake of saving her tribe from a terrible disease.
