Breath-taking bridges from then to nowadays..




 bridge, as we know, is a structure built to span physical obstacles such as a body of water,valley, or road, for the purpose of providing passage over the obstacle. Designs of bridges vary depending on the function of the bridge, the nature of the terrain where the bridge is constructed, the material used to make it and the funds available to build it. 

And this structures started long long time ago, around 13th Century, simple arch form and vary primitive material was used for it. Simply stone or wood were helping to pass the river.. And now.. ? 
We have the most complicated structures that is hard sometimes even to understand.. 

 So let's take a look at those amazing creations of human... 
  


























Now let's take a look at those hanging bridges that started from the simple materials too... 






















And than the rest are just simply breath taking long distance or phenomenal size paths and impressive construction bridges... 






















































And the last one is my favourite - Moses Bridge in Netherlands. The bridge gives visitors a truly unique experience when visiting a close 17th century fort. Designed by architecture group RO & AD, the bridge is constructed out of Accoya wood, a high technology wood that is supposedly harder and more durable than some of the best tropical woods. It is treated with a nontoxic anti-fungal coating.
From a distance, the Moses Bridge appears to vanish, allowing the viewer to see the flow of the moat uninterrupted. As one approaches though, the sunken bridge becomes apparent. It splits the waters allowing for a unique walk to the historic sight across the way. This bridge would be very cool to experience firsthand, though I think I would be just a little bit nervous when crossing the moat.
