People learned to build bridges many centuries ago. At first, they were questionable constructions made of stones, wood, and even tree roots. But nowadays, bridges have turned into magnificent structures able to withstand huge strain. And still, some bridges are so bizarre and scary that not everyone would dare to step on them!

– #1. The construction looms 186 ft above the water’s surface, and they say that when the weather is bad, you can’t see the shore from the middle of the bridge. All things combined, it creates an eerie feeling of being suspended in some kind of nerve-racking limbo.
– #2. At 410 ft long, this is the longest curved suspension bridge in the world. The deck of Sky Bridge is 2,170 ft above sea level, among the mountain peaks, and boy, that’s a sight to behold!
– #3. This bridge held the title of the world’s highest from 1929, when it was completed, till 2001, when Liuguanghe Bridge in China surpassed it by 19 ft.
– #4. The tallest bridge in the world seems to be floating over the river Tarn’s gorge valley in southern France. The total length of the bridge is 8,070 ft, and its maximum height is a whopping 1,125 ft above the ground!
– #5. This is one of the longest and oldest teakwood footbridges in the world. Besides, it’s probably one of the most photographed as well!
– #6. The world’s longest glass bridge, opened in 2017, hangs over a picturesque canyon in the Hebei province of China. About 1,600 ft long and more than 700 ft high, the bridge is paved with 1,077 glass panels!
– #7. The walkway isn’t particularly long, only 200 ft, but the view that is waiting is breathtaking. Everyone using the pathway has to wear special anti-slip shoe covers.
– #8. This is the largest rigid-frame bridge in Japan, even though it looks more like a twisted roller coaster for drivers! The structure has incredibly steep inclines on both sides, and at first sight, you may doubt that a regular car is able to climb the bridge.
– #9. The locals call this construction “the drunk bridge.” Its length is only 850 ft, but the curve of the bridge that protrudes over the Norwegian Sea plays a funny visual trick on motorists.
-#10. The modern version of the Seven Mile Bridge was completed in 1982, and its construction cost was about $45 million.
