Travel’s greatest rewards are found in the journey as much as the destination. As you’re getting from point A to point B, it’s important to stop and soak in the amazing sights along the way, and bridges are some of the most impressive structures enabling you to reach your destination. These engineering masterpieces allow you to traverse across rugged landscapes, rushing rivers or steep canyons, or venture into a completely new urban landscape to embark on the next stage of your adventure.
Bridges are products of the immense creativity, intellect and effort of architects and engineers, so next time you cross a bridge by foot, bicycle, vehicle or any other mode of transportation, make sure to stop and admire the work that went into making your journey possible. Here are some of the best bridges in the world.
