world's strangest bridges

 Most bridges are utilitarian and commonplace, But some stand out from the crowd. Some bridges, from architectural marvels to innovative designs, draw tens of thousands or perhaps millions of travelers annually. Of course, everyone knows the recognizable Brooklyn Bridge in New York and the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.

Here are the world's strangest bridges that you really must see:

there are a lot of lesser-known but no less impressive bridges to see on your upcoming vacation.

Here is the list that you really must see:

The Moses Bridge, the Netherlands

However, the Moses Bridge in Holland crosses the river without any intervening land. Fort de Rovere, the biggest fort in the Line West Brabant, a defensive line that employed moats to fend off attackers, is accessible through the bridge. It was recommended against building a bridge over the moat for a repair project since it would have defiled the area's attractiveness.

Instead of crossing over the lake, the idea was to build a bridge that cuts through it like a trench, less visually obtrusive while yet providing access. The bridge, which was constructed in 2010, Loopgraafbrug is his name in the beginning but is now nicknamed the Moses Bridge because it resembles the biblical prophet Moses in that it seems to split the water. Although the waterline can occasionally appear dangerous, dams keep the water level under control, preventing flooding of the submerged bridge.[1]

The Golden Bridge, Vietnam


In Vietnam, The Golden Bridge is made to appear as though two enormous stone hands are supporting it. The ancient hands, which dwarf the people walking across the bridge, appear to have been there for decades, yet they were just put there in 2018. They are composed of fiberglass and wire mesh. The bridge is a magnificent sight in and of itself, providing views of the rocky country below.
to a cable car, The bridge connects the gardens station and is situated in the Bà Nà Hills resort outside of Da Nang City. With a 19,000-foot length, the cable car now holds the Guinness World Record for the longest uninterrupted single-track cable car journey (5,791 meters). The resort Forbes characterizes as "a combination between Disney's Epcot, a Buddhist mountain retreat, and a French ski resort" does not claim to hold any documents, but The Golden Bridge is an amazing addition to the property.[2]

Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge, Northern Ireland


the second-largest ocean in the world is the Atlantic Ocean, yet despite its enormous size, a bridge does in fact span it. To allow fishermen to get to a tiny offshore island via the mainland of Northern Ireland, the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge was initially constructed in 1755. The bridge, which spans (20-meter) broad abyss and (30-meter) deep, may not traverse a very sizable area of the water, but it does so.
Today, a more up-to-date bridge connects the two sides, allowing travelers to claim they had crossed the Atlantic on foot. on Scotland's west coast, Although Clachan Bridge, and on a shorter distance accomplishes the same feat over, it does not have the same claim as Carrick-a-Rede. The little arch bridge spans a small waterway that has access to the Atlantic at both ends.[3]

The Euro Banknote Bridges, the Netherlands


To avoid unjustly favoring particular nations, the pictures on Euro banknotes are made up of bridges that never existed. To avoid unjustly favoring particular nations, the pictures on Euro banknotes are made up of bridges that never existed. It would be fantastic if these bridges hypothetical, nevertheless, turned out to exist in reality, Robin Stam said. He contacted the Spijkenisse city council after being born there, and "before I knew it, a team large was working on my concept."
In Spijkenisse, the bridges were built between 2011 and 2013. The banknotes seven, which stand for the collaboration of the European nations, each feature a distinctive architectural design. For instance, €50 is Renaissance and €20 is Gothic. However, they are colored vividly to match their individual notes even if the bridges actual are smaller than the artwork seen on the banknote. Two of the bridges were constructed with steel, and the other five were constructed with colored concrete.[4]

Banpo Bridge Moonlight Rainbow Fountain, South Korea


In Seoul, Banpo Bridge, South Korea, the upper portion of a (1,140-meter) 3,740-foot double-decker bridge that sits atop Jamsu Bridge and spans the River Han,
In Seoul, Banpo Bridge, South Korea, the upper portion of a (1,140-meter) 3,740-foot double-decker bridge that sits atop Jamsu Bridge and spans the River Han, was built. Banpo Bridge holds the World Record Guinness for the longest fountain bridge in the world thanks to the installation of fountains along both of its sides in 2008. Surprisingly, the bridge's sides are lined with 380 nozzles that blast out (54 tonnes) 60 tons of water per minute.
The water pours down in a variety of beautiful patterns during the day, but it is best viewed at night. The water jets are rainbow-colored LED lights, and the motions are timed to music. Visitors may even stand on the bridge lower to see the 20-minute performance from below since Banpo Bridge is hung above Jamsu Bridge.[5]

Kinzua Bridge, USA

In Pennsylvania, The Kinzua Bridge provides a glimpse of what a bridge will like the look once it is destroyed, which is something that most bridges do not. It measured 626 meters long and 92 meters high, making it the world's longest train bridge at that time for a brief time. The building was undergoing repair work in 2003 when a tornado largely damaged it.[6]

The Bastei Bridge, Germany


The Bastei is a magnificent rock structure that towers over Germany's Elbe River at a height of 636 feet (194 meters). Before it was destroyed by fire in 1484, Neurathen Castle stood atop the natural towers. The spectacular rocks continue to draw large visitors even though there is no longer a fortification there. To connect the pillars, a wooden bridge was constructed in the early 1800s. Around 1850, it was renovated to become the current sandstone bridge.
While crossing the bridge, you may get a close-up view of the pillars and a bird's-eye view of the valley and surrounding mountains. Both the striking bridge and sandstone towers themselves with their medieval appearance lure visitors to the region. when you see the bridge tucked in between the pillars It seems like something out of The Lord of the Rings.[7]

Las Lajas Sanctuary, Colombia


Overlooking a canyon in Colombia lies the Gothic revival-style chapel known as Las Lajas Sanctuary. The structure protrudes (100 meters) 330 feet from the canyon's floor on one side, and a (49 meter) 160-foot long bridge that spans the Guitara River connects it to the opposite side. Due to the area allegedly being the scene of a miracle, a less opulent shrine before the current church was constructed between 1916 and 1949.
According to local lore, in 1754, a deaf-mute daughter and her lady sought refuge from a storm in a cave and saw the Virgin Mary appear; following this, the kid was able to speak and converse. People started visiting the cave on pilgrimages to pray for miracles, and at some time, a statue of Mary is said to have materialized on a piece of stone. The majestic church's altar now includes this stone.[8]

The Tianjin Eye on Yongle Bridge, China


The only Ferris wheel that is suspended over a river, namely the Hai River, is the Eye Tianjin in China, which sets it apart from other wheels Ferris. It is dwarfed in the United Arab Emirates by the Ain Dubai, the highest wheel Ferris in the world right now, which is 250 meters tall and measures 120 meters tall. Yongle Bridge and The Tianjin Eye, on the other hand, are distinctive since no other wheel observation is affixed to a bridge.
The wheel was on public display in 2008 and has 48 compartments that can hold 384 riders at once while requiring 30 minutes to complete a circle. It is connected to the bridge by visually striking triangular struts. When illuminated at night with vibrant neon lights, it is a striking sight for anyone walking across the bridge below.[9]

Living Root Bridges, India

The live roots of trees, often rubber trees, are used to create a suspension bridge known as a living root bridge. of Meghalaya the Indian state, where the deep forest makes it impractical to construct roads and bridges out of materials like steel and concrete, these living bridges are especially prevalent. To help tribal groups traverse the numerous rivers in the region, throughout the province more than 100 living bridges have developed.
Bamboo is stretched over the river to create the living bridges, and the aerial roots are then coaxed into place. The bridges get stronger and can handle more traffic as over time the trees continue to grow. Because they exhibit "a singular ethnobotanical journey anchored in synthesis and profound nature-reciprocity culture," they are now on Unesco's preliminary list for world heritage recognition sites.[10]
