Bridges you should know

Take a good look at that bridge . If you think about it, you will realize that it not only has a structural function. If you look at it carefully you will realize its originality and beauty. All over the world there are impressive bridges that over time have become true works of art that every good traveler must visit one day.

One of the most famous bridges is the Pont Neuf , located in the heart of Paris. The way it stood above the Seine, its wide arches and turrets have turned it into what they call “poetry in stone”. Similar considerations apply to the medieval aesthetics of the Charles Bridge in Prague and the impressive Ponte Vecchio in Florence.

Sometimes there is beauty in simplicity. This is the case with the indescribable Vasco de Gama bridge that rises over the Tagus River in Lisbon. This is the longest bridge in Europe. The opposite, although it does not mean that it is less beautiful, is the Tower Bridge in London that looks more like a cathedral than a bridge due to its ornate ornamentation. Longitudinally the Akashi-Kaikyo , near Kobe in Japan, is the longest suspension bridge in the world.

Some of the largest bridges in the world also have great symbolic value. This is the case of the unforgettable Brooklyn Bridge in New York. The bridge that crosses the Chicago River at Michigan Avenue is also an icon. Who has not seen him rise in countless movies?
