The longest suspension bridge in the world opens in the Czech Republic

A suspension bridge for pedestrians, the longest construction of its kind in the world, was inaugurated in a mountain resort in the Czech Republic.

The 721 meter long bridge is built at an altitude of over 1,100 meters above sea level. It connects two mountain ridges and rises 95 meters above the valley.

Sky Bridge 721 is located in the north-east of the country, in the Kralicky Sneznik mountain range, near the border with Poland, about 200 kilometers east of Prague.

Construction took two years and cost around CZK 200 million (US $ 8.3 million).

The last and longest bridge of its kind is located in Arouca, Portugal and is 516 meters (1,693 feet) long.
