23 Most AMAZING Bridges in the World

From bridges built thousands of years ago and are still in use ... to iconic landmarks and amazing feats of engineering ... Here are 23 of the most amazing bridges in the world!

Subscribe to Talltanic

#10 Bosphorus Bridge, Turkey
Along with two other bridges, the Bosphorous Bridge serves as to link Asia to Europe. More than 5,100 feet long and 110 feet wide, it was the longest suspension bridge in the world when constructed in 1973. WHile the idea of building a bridge across the Bosphorus Strait had been proposed as far back as 485 BC, a decision to build it wasn’t reached until the 1950s (AD).

#9 Bridge of Sighs, Italy
Northern Italy is where you’ll find this bridge made of white limestone. Built in 1600, it passes over the Rio di Palazzo and connects a detention center called the New Prison to the Doge’s Palace, where the chief magistrate lived until the 18th century. That’s now a museum which attracts around a million visitors annually. There are actually many bridges named Bridge of Sighs around the world … including the UK, Peru, and one in Yemen, as we’ve seen on our list.

#8 Si-o-se Pol, Iran
Found in Iran, this structure is also known as the Bridge of 33 Arches, or the Allahverdi Khan Bridge. As its name implies, the bridge is composed of twin superimposed rows containing 33 arches … which are illuminated at night, offering a spectacular reflection in the Zayandeh River.
With construction finished by 1602, it has a total length exceeding 975 feet.

#7 Lupu Bridge, China
The world’s second longest steel arch bridge is located in Shanghai … and has a total length of 2,461 feet. When it opened in 2003, it was actually the world’s longest such bridge but lost its title to another bridge in China, the Chaotianmen , within 6 years. If you want to see the view from the top of the bridge, you’ll have to make the “Shanghai Climb” … that involves taking a high speed elevator from the base of the bridge, then climbing more than 360 steps to the top!

#6 MillauViaduct, France
This cable-stayed bridge is located in southern France, where it spans the gorge valley of the River Tarn in Millau. Opening in 2004, it’s part of a high-speed freeway system that links Paris in the north to Spain in the south. Did you know that this is considered to be the world’s tallest bridge? THat’s because its tallest mast stands at around 1,125 feet above the Tarn River Valley. The Millau Viaduct has often been called one of history’s greatest achievements in engineering.

#5 Brooklyn Bridge, NYC
This icon of New York City finished construction in 1883 … and is among the oldest roadway bridges in the US. Spanning nearly 1600 feet, it was the first steel wire suspension bridge ever constructed. Thousands of citizens cross the bridge into and out of Manhattan every day. The Brooklyn Bridge has been a national landmark since 1964 and has been featured in so many books, TV shows and movies that it should have its own agent!

#4 Langkawi Sky Bridge, Malaysia (thumb?) (lang-kow-ee)
This isn’t a place to visit if you’re afraid of heights … the term ‘Sky Bridge’ might offer a clue to that. Perched precariously close to 2,200 feet above sea level on Palau Langkawi (an island in Malaysia), you’ll need a cable car to get to the top of the mountain where it’s located. The cable-stayed pedestrian bridge winds more than 400 feet, and was completed in 2005.

#3 Oresund Bridge (orr-ih-sund), Sweden (thumb?)
Located in Sweden, this is actually as much a railway as it is a bridge … in fact, it is Europe’s longest combined road and rail bridge. Opening in 2000, the hybrid structure links Sweden to Denmark over a 5 mile span, to an artificial island in the middle of the Oresund Strait. From there, a 2.5 mile tunnel takes you into Danish territory. The bridge not only links Scandinavian road and rail networks with those of Western Europe, it also serves as a backbone for Internet traffic thanks to a data cable it carries.

#2 Golden Gate Bridge, SF
Not unlike the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City, the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco is so iconic that it needs no introduction. Many sources claim this to be the most beautiful (and perhaps the most photographed) bridge in the world. With a total length of 8981 feet and a height of 746 feet, the Golden Gate was both the longest and the tallest bridge in the world when it opened in 1937. It no longer holds those titles, but it is still the tallest bridge in the US. And it’s one of the country’s most internationally recognized symbols.

8. Nan Madol
Off the coast of the island of Pohnpei in Micronesia stand the ruins of the ancient city of Nan Madol. The only ancient city ever built entirely on a coral reef, the city is made up of almost 100 artificial islands made of coral fill and stone, separated by narrow canals and protected by an outer seawall. Like Easter Island, this place is an engineering marvel!!

7. Teotihuacan
Before Europeans came to North America, an unknown culture arose in central Mexico and built a grand city that we have come to know as Teotihuacan. In its heyday, it was a city that covered 20 square kilometers (13 square miles) and was home to 200,000 people, all of them in carefully constructed and delineated neighborhoods where people were grouped according to the crafts that they constructed.

6. Puma Punku
The massive ancient city of Tiwanaku in Bolivia is dominated by a temple complex called Puma Punku that has puzzled archaeologists for decades. The city was already standing when the Inca moved into the region in 1470, although it was completely abandoned.

5. Ggantija, Malta
On the Mediterranean island of Gozo, one of the islands of Malta, stands a megalithic temple complex that predates the pyramids of Egypt. The two towers were built during the Neolithic Age, between 3600 and 2500 BC. They are the second-oldest manmade religious structures in the world. Number one is coming up so stay tuned!!

4. Stonehenge
The Salisbury Plain in England is home to possibly the most famous mysterious megalithic structure in the world, so of course, I had to mention it! Stonehenge was built from 3000 BC to 2000 BC, constructed in a series of stages. The site currently consists of a ring of standing stones, each stone at least 4 meters (13 feet) tall, 2.1 meters (7 feet) wide, and weighing around 25 tons.

3. Newgrange
Another Neolithic site, with important astrological alignment, can be found at Newgrange in Ireland’s Boyne Valley. Older than Stonehenge and the Great Pyramids of Giza, Newgrange was originally believed to be a tomb, but it’s actually a temple complex that was built by Stone Age farmers more than 5,200 years ago in 3200 BC.

2. Skara Brae
Located on the windy Orkney Islands of northern Scotland stands the Neolithic settlement known as Skara Brae. The most complete Neolithic village in Europe, Skara Brae was probably occupied between 3180 BC and 2500 BC.

1. Göbekli Tepe
Its name is Turkish for “potbelly hill,” and it’s the most recently found ancient structure on this list. Found on the plains of Anatolia, Göbekli Tepe is a man made hill, standing about 15 meters (49 feet) tall, and about 300 meters (980 feet) in diameter. Who cares?? Well It’s about 11,000 years old, making it the oldest temple structure in the world.

Origins Explained is the place to be to find all the answers to your questions, from mysterious events and unsolved mysteries to everything there is to know about the world and its amazing animals!

25 Most Amazing Ancient Ruins of the World

The world is home to a plethora of fascinating ancient ruins, from crumbling cities to temples that have withstood the test of time. Many of these ancient societies were incredibly innovative and forward thinking. Just take a look at their meticulous city planning and incredible feats of engineering; some of which we are yet to fully understand. Some of the most captivating ancient ruins are full of thousand-year-old mysteries that will boggle even the most curious of minds.

10 Of World's Largest Mega Construction Projects

Here are 10 mega-construction projects on track to open soon.


Many developers, engineers, and architects have grand ideas, but actually pulling off breathtakingly enormous endeavors is something relatively few accomplish.
Here are 10 mega-construction projects on track to open soon.
Number 10. Beijing Daxing International Airport, China. Despite delays, estimates still place the initial completion stage of what will become the world’s largest airport within this decade. Once fully up an operational, the facility is anticipated to handle roughly 100 million passengers per year.
Number 9. Kingdom Tower, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Among the many challenges in erecting epic buildings is securing the required funds, but this mixed-used development has finally surmounted that obstacle. Completion is currently slated for 2020, at which time the Kingdom Tower will likely be named the world’s tallest building. 
Number 8. Chernobyl Arch, Ukraine. The 32,000-ton, multi-billion dollar steel structure is intended to keep lingering radioactivity from the 1986 meltdown contained so clean up can move forward. Once installed, likely in 2017, it will remain in use for at least 100 years. 
Number 7. Hotel Abraj Kudai, Mecca, Saudi Arabia. When the hotel’s doors open in 2017, the massive hospitality venue will boast the most rooms in the world. The 10,000 spaces it has available far outnumber the roughly 6,000 offered by the current record holder, The MGM Grand Hotel of Las Vegas. 
Number 6. Crossrail Project, London, England. Not only is work progressing at a steady pace, it’s happening in the midst of one of the world’s most populated and bustling cities. The first station was finished in September of 2015 and is expected to start welcoming passengers in 2018.
Number 5. Los Angeles Stadium, Inglewood, California. The Rams are officially returning to Los Angeles, and plans to build the team a fancy NFL-worthy stadium are underway. Making the 300-acre arena fan and team-ready is expected to take about 3 years and $2.1 billion.
Number 4. Gotthard Base Tunnel, Switzerland. Boring a 35-mile hole in the base of the Swiss Alps is no small undertaking, but persistence has paid off. The tunnel, which will offer quick passage through the mountains, has arranged a grand opening celebration for June of 2016.
Number 3. Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon Walkway, China. For some, walking across a bridge roughly 1000 feet above solid ground isn’t quite terrifying enough. That group will no doubt be cheering come May of 2016, when this glass-bottomed, 1200-foot long pedestrian passageway – the most elevated and lengthy on the planet - opens. 
Number 2. Shanghai Disney Resort, China. Disney creates magic, but it doesn’t happen overnight. After about 7 years of planning and building, the company’s latest theme park will open on June 16th. The expansive grounds include rides, attractions, characters, and entertainment. Right next door is an entire Disney-themed town. 
Number 1. World One, Mumbai, India. Among the tallest buildings currently in the works, the entirely residential tower should be ready in 2017. In terms of architecture and design, the massive undertaking has been compared to Chicago’s landmark Willis Tower.

6. Chandra X-Ray Space Telescope

Along with the Hubble Space Telescope Chandra is one of NASA’s most advanced space observatories. Chandra has advanced astronomers knowledge of stars, galaxies, black holes and the origin of life inducing elements. It was appropriately and fittingly named after Indian-American astrophysicist Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar, whose work on black holes earned him a Nobel Prize in physics in 1983. Originally launched in 1999 the observatories longevity and scientific value has made it one of NASA’s most successful missions. In 2014 Chandra observed the awe-inspiring Tycho supernova remnant, which was created by the explosion of a white dwarf star.

5. Shasta Dam

Stretching mightily across the Sacramento River in Northern California construction of the Shasta Dam took place from 1938 to 1945. Once completed it would back up water for over 35 miles to form Shasta Lake, California’s largest reservoir and a place that is visited by millions of vacationers annually. Frank Crowe, who had just helped finish the Hoover Dam oversaw the entire project, which included 4,700 workers building what was the second largest concrete dam in the country. Twelve million tons of gravel was needed for the project. Luckily a substantial supply was located in the nearby city of Redding. To transport this large quantity of gravel the world’s longest conveyor belt was constructed. It was 9.6 miles long and operated 24/7 for several years.

4. Millau Viaduct

Soaring high above the clouds, the world was captivated by the Millau Viaduct when it opened in December 2004. The idea that the viaduct only took three years to build is almost as astounding as the bridge itself. Towers on the incredible structure rise to a height of one thousand one hundred and twenty-five feet, making it the tallest bridge in the world. Seven pillars weighing 700 tons each were built for the project that had to be placed in exactly the right place for the bridge to be a success. Multiple satellite signals were used to help pinpoint the right spots for the pillars to be placed. Bridge specialist Michel Virlogeux and renowned British architect Norman Foster were employed to design the Millau Viaduct which is widely regarded as an engineering marvel that has no equal.

3. Hubble Space Telescope

Anytime you hear news about a new distant star or planet found in outer space it was likely discovered with the use of the Hubble Space Telescope, which has rested in low Earth orbit since 1990. It's named after Edwin Hubble, who took the largest telescopes of his day to the Mt. Wilson Observatory near Pasadena, California and discovered countless unknown planets and galaxies in the 1920’s. Experts have published over fourteen thousand scientific papers using data from the space telescope, making it one of the most productive instruments of science in history. At launch, it weighed twenty-four thousand pounds, and today it is twenty-seven thousand pounds and 43.5 feet long.

2. Hong Kong International Airport

Though the Kansai International Airport in Japan was the first to be entirely built on an artificial island when it opened in 1994, it lies on soft land that has been sinking much more quickly than anticipated, ultimately making the project a potentially colossal failure. The Hong Kong International Airport went a lot better. The project took six years and around twenty billion dollars to build making it one of the biggest projects in the aviation industry. It lies on Chek Lap Kok, an island that is mostly made of land reclaimed for the construction of the airport. The 24-hour airport is one of the busiest in the world and holds one of the Earth’s largest passenger terminal buildings

1. ISS

The International Space Station is not only the largest human-made object in orbit, but it also represents a collaboration of nations around the world. Five space agencies (NASA, Russia’s Roscosmos (ross cosmos), the European Space Agency, The Canadian Space Agency and the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency) representing fifteen countries were involved in constructing the one hundred billion dollar station. The structure was taken and built piece by piece in orbit and has been continuously occupied since November 2, 2000. Current plans call for ISS to be in operation until 2024, by which time some of its first components will be nearly three decades old.

10 World's Most Amazing Feats Of Engineering

Here are the top 10 most incredible bridges, structures and tourist destinations that made history they feature amazing architecture!

5. The Millau Viaduct
This lovely bridge takes the title of tallest bridge in the world. The tallest point of the bridge measures in at a jaw-dropping 343 meters or 1,125 feet. Being a cable sustained bridge makes this construction even more impressive. This bridge has been ranked one of the most amazing feats of engineering several times over, and it took home the award for Outstanding Structure in 2006 from The International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering. It finished its construction in 2004, and it connects Spain and France. It was meant to relieve traffic congestion on roads. The bridge is expected to stand for 120 years, and it cost 320 million euros or 348 million dollars.

4. International Space Station
The international space station or the ISS is a pretty good example of why every kid wanted to be an astronaut when they were little. Although it is mostly used to study gravity and the environment of space, it is also used to study biology, physics, astronomy, meteorology, and many other scientific fields. The space station sits in low earth orbit, and it was first launched in 1998, and it is the largest artificial satellite in the world. It can even be seen from earth just by the naked eye. The space station has been inhabited by people from 17 different nations and it is an excellent example of humans working together. The station is also constantly growing with more and more parts being sent up when needed and when there are more technological advances. With funding for space exploration being slashed in a lot of nations, most notably America, this station hasn't seen the growth that it once did.

3. Great Wall of China
The great wall of China was, of course, built with a very specific purpose in mind. The wall was one of the biggest feats of defense as well as engineering. The wall was constructed in 220 to 206 BC when it was commissioned by the first emperor of China. The wall also helped regulate trade as well as provided border control. Little of the wall as we know it today is part of the original. The wall has been rebuilt, renovated, and enhanced to the point that little of the original wall still exists. Nevertheless, it earns a place on our list because of the sheer fact that it measures in at an incredible 21,196 kilometers or 13,171 miles in length. It also one of China's most popular tourist attractions, but despite popular opinion, it is not visible from space. A photographer captured something that looked like the wall in low orbit, but it's been disputed if that can be used as proof that the naked eye can see it. A person would need over 7x the average eyesight of humans.

2. Great Pyramids of Giza
One of the oldest feats on our list, the pyramids still more than qualify. The great pyramid of Giza is the largest and oldest of the ancient Egyptian pyramids, and it is also the oldest wonder of the ancient world while also being the only one mainly intact. It held the title of the tallest human-made structure for more than 3800 years. It measures in at 146 meters or 481 feet. The building of the pyramid was so accurate that there is an average margin of error of about 58 millimeters. The estimated workforce to build the pyramids is an average of nearly 15,000 people and a peak of above 40,000. It's also believed that without the use of modern tools, the pyramids took about ten years to build. Despite popular opinion, it's recently been discovered that the pyramids weren't built using slave labor. The team consisted of highly skilled workers instead of random people. We're still learning more about how this structure was built thousands of years later.

1.The Large Hadron Collider
The large hadron collider is the largest and most powerful particle collider in the world as well as the biggest single machine in the world. Located in Geneva, Switzerland, the team that built it consisted of over 10,000 scientist and engineers from over 100 countries and with the collaboration of hundreds of universities and labs. The building of the monster means that we can study even more complex mysteries of physics that we would have never been able to accomplish before. Research done with this hopes to answer the questions of the fundamental laws of physics as well as the structure of time and space, quantum mechanics, and general relativity. It was built by CERN or the European Organization for Nuclear Research from 1998 to 2008. It also took a budget of 7.5 billion euros or a little or 8 billion dollars. Research has mostly been focused on finding the Higgs Boson particle that exists in theoretical physics but hasn't been observed in the natural world.
