If you’ve ever wanted to experience what it’s like to ride a roller coaster sitting in your car, then the Eshima Ohashi Bridge in Japan might be your chance! Even looking at the pictures of this bridge gives us the chills! How do cars climb up the bridge? Why was it built this way?
First things first, this Japanese bridge is not as scary as it seems. Yes, it does look ridiculously steep from a far distance. It seems like cars would just slip and slide right back down.
But in fact, you don’t have to be a hell of a driver to go across this bridge. Thousands of cars cross it every day. It’s all a matter of perspective. If you look at it from a different angle, it looks more like an ordinary bridge with a relatively steep incline, but quite possible to handle. If you watch a video of a person driving over it, you might find yourself a little disappointed.

– China: This is one of the highest bridges in the world right. It was built at an incredible 1509 feet (460 meters) across the Sidu River. Well, if you’re there, don’t look down.
– The funny thing about this French bridge is that its highest is 62 feet (19 meters) taller than the Eiffel Tower. It connects two large plateaus, so the view from the bridge itself is incredible and, honestly speaking, quite scary especially in foggy weather!
– What looks like a small wheel in London is a bridge! Every Friday it rolls out and becomes a usual insignificant bridge until it turns into a wheel again!
– This is the only bridge in the world that tilts! Normally it’s just a pedestrian bridge. But when there is a boat or a ship that needs to pass underneath it the entire thing tilts giving the water transport enough room to squeeze in.
– Unlike the previous super modern bridges, Ponte Vecchio was built back in the Roman times! Of course, it has been rebuilt and upgraded a few times since then. By the way, Vecchio is Italian for «old», so it definitely lives up to its name!
