http://www.arosfa-beddgelert.co.uk/gallery/slides/Beddgelert bridge over River Colwyn.jpg
This exactly the bridge I had on my mind. Visited Mostar once and walked on that bridge too. Really beautiful.
Ive always wanted to go there just because of the beauty of the architecture, the town looks like its right out of a medieval story.
Yeah, you should defenitely visit it once. The Stari Grad (Old Town) is plenty full of Ottoman architecture like shops. The Old Bridge of course is the main attraction of the town. Its really worth visiting. You also might try Sarajevo, its full of beautiful medieval architecture.
Take a look at some of the picture on this site, really great photos
I saw a picture of a bridge in spain very similar to the one at mostar but I cant find it, any idea what its called or if there is a link?
hmmm...i dont know. I'll do some research. Also, nice link too.
When bosnia was part of the ottoman empire were there any links between them and spain? I know parts of spain were under muslim rule but I dont know if it was at the same time or what relations if any existed.
No, I don't think so. But I do think what you mean, most of the architecture in Spain kinda looks the same as in medieval Bosnia because the Moores (People from Marocco) conquered the half op Spain and they had the same looking architecture features like the Ottomans.
Its something similar to this that i saw in spain, but apparently this one is roman
Bridge of Sighs, Cambridge, UK
Gaudi's bridge in Parc Guell
That's awesome. Love this pic.
besides being a great engineering achievement even for the XXI century, the viaduc de millau is quite nice:
the pont du gard as well, though a bit (OK, 2000 years) older
The Ruck A Chucky Bridge, by T. Y Lin and Associates, the project was never built, but the design is amazing.
Professor Lin passed away in 2003, but I would love to see this bridge built as a memorial to his brilliant and innovate ideas in structural engineering and concrete design. The elegance of the cable stayed bridge is sublime in it's beauty and simplicity-directness of concept.
Here is a realized project. The Nanning Bridge in Nanning China by Lin.
Charles Bridge is one of the great examples of a gothic-style bridge.
I'm biased too Matt.
But otherwise, I'm loving this new one I found from New Zealand.
I'm completely biased and just want to rep my home. New River Gorge Bridge.
However, all the other photos posted are amazing.
I bungee jumped that bridge... I've jumped out of airplanes several times and jumping this bridge was easily the scariest moment in my life. I jumped a second time to prove to myself that I was man enough. All it proved to me was that I had wasted a $100 and that I was really stupid.
Except now that I get to tell tall tales about the experience on internet fora and to my kids (who really haven't made up their minds as to whether they can believe me anymore).
