The world’s largest suspension bridge has opened to travellers in the Czech Republic. The bridge, which had been under construction for nearly two years, was officially opened.
- It is the world’s longest suspension bridge. It broke the record of the currently longest bridge, the Arouca Bridge (516 meters long) located in Portugal.
- The cable car can take you to the bridge, which crosses two mountain ranges and hovers 95 metres (312 feet) above a valley.
- It measures 721 metres (2,365 feet) in length. Tourists will enter at a height of 1,125 metres and depart at a height of 10 metres.
- Visitors visiting the bridge will have to walk one way only. They will step onto a paved pathway in a woodland after exiting the other side, where they will learn about Czech history.
- The 1.2-metre-wide bridge, according to the holiday resort where this bridge is located, is open to children of all ages and heights, but is not ideal for individuals using pushchairs or wheelchairs.
- The suspension bridge cost 200 million crowns, or $8.4 million, according to local media sources.
- The Czech Republic Sky Bridge is 154 metres longer than Nepal’s Baglung Parbat Footbridge, which is the world’s longest suspension footbridge.
- Prague, the Czech capital, is about a 2.5-hour journey from Sky Bridge 721.
