World’s longest suspension bridge opens in Czech Republic

The world’s largest suspension bridge has been opened to tourists in the Czech Republic

The world’s largest suspension bridge has opened for tourists in the Czech Republic and its pictures are going viral on social media.

The bridge, under construction for nearly two years, was officially opened on Friday. It has been named ‘Sky Bridge 721’. The walkway promises an exciting, but slightly eerie experience, along with spectacular views of the cloud-shrouded Jesenki Mountains.

The bridge connects the two mountain ranges and hangs 95 meters (312 ft) above a valley and is accessible by cable car. It is 721 meters or 2,365 feet tall. Tourists will enter it at a height of 1,125 meters and exit at a height of 10 meters.

It will be a one-way walk for the tourists visiting the bridge. At the exit from the other side, they will step onto a paved path in a forest where visitors will learn about Czech history.

Vacation Resort, where the bridge is located, said the 1.2-metre-wide bridge is open to children of all ages and heights, but is not suitable for people with pushchairs or wheelchairs.

According to local media reports, the suspension bridge is expected to cost 200 million crowns, which is approximately $8.4 million.

The Czech Republic Sky Bridge is 154 meters longer than Nepal’s Baglung Parbat footbridge, which currently holds the Guinness World Record for the longest suspension footbridge.

Sky Bridge 721 is about a 2.5 hour drive from the Czech capital Prague.

The Czech Republic is a landlocked country in Central Europe. It shares its border with Austria to the south, Germany to the west, Poland to the northeast, and Slovakia to the southeast.
