Don’t Look Down! Breathtaking Bridges You Might Think Twice About Crossing

Bridges are a beautiful thing. They help us cross bodies of water, traverse canyons, and can also be works of art. They are a testament to the determination of man to get to where we want to go. As beautiful and helpful as they are, they can also be incredibly unnerving. It’s against human nature to be so high up with imminent death on either side of you. Try not to get vertigo; these are the most insane bridges around the world.

The Old Bridge Of Konitsa

Located in Eprius, Greece, the Bridge of Konitsa is the stone portal that leads to and from the ancient town of Konitsa. Built in 1870, it crosses where the Aoos river meets the Voidomatis river. Rich with history, the region was first inhabited way back in 2100 BC it looks as though ancient Greeks might have traversed the bridge at some point.
