I want to share with you these 15 photos of the most beautiful bridges around the world. Bridges connect land, countries and people, these listed below are just pure art work.

This spectacular bridge is recently opened in Gstaad, Switzerland. At 9 800 feet high and 351 feet long Peak Walk is the first bridge that connects two mountain peaks. The bridge is designed to survive extreme weather, heavy snow and strong wind. It can hold up to 300 people, but for a safety reasons that number has been restricted to 150.
Puente Nuevo, Spain
Puente Nuevo (New Bridge) is located in Ronda, Andalucia, Spain and it’s not that new at all. They started building this bridge in 1971 and it took 42 years to be built. Fifty workers died during construction. Chamber below the central arch was used as a prison for a long time.

Ponte Vecchio, Italy
The Ponte Vecchio (Old Bridge) is a Medieval stone bridge over the Arno River, in Florence, Italy, noted for still having shops built along it, as was once common. Butchers initially occupied the shops; the present tenants are jewelers, art dealers and souvenir sellers.
Khaju Bridge, Iran
Khaju Bridge was built by the Persian king, Shah Abbas around 1650, on the foundations of an older bridge. Although architecturally functioning as a bridge, it also served a primary function as a building and a place for public meetings. In the center of the structure, a pavilion exists inside which Shah Abbas would have once sat, admiring the view. Today, there are remains of a stone seat, all that is left of the king’s chair.
If you ever end up in one of these areas I hope you will remember to visit these amazing constructions.
