They connect countries, cities, villages, hiking trails, railways, and continents. Some are ornate, simple, or sleek. Made of steel, wood, and sometimes twigs. You’ll find the amazing architectural wonders of bridges around the world. Here are a few of my favorites from my travels.

Amazing photographs of a variety of bridges! Here in Vancouver we have the Lion’s Gate bridge which is pretty impressive as well.

Wow, that is an amazing collection. I wanted to be crossing the one in Mongolia!

What a wonderful idea for a post! It’s easy to forget that an essential part of modern the landscape such as a bridge can be a beautiful marvel in itself.
The Mongolian one is my favourite too.

Wow, LOVE all of these, Sherry! The Golden Gate one especially.
As for my favorite bridges? The Dragon Bridge in Ljubljana is pretty cool. And I’m a sucker for Pittsburgh, PA – the city of bridges!

Ok..I don’t think I would have made it over Galata bridge! It didn’t look too sturdy! 🙂 Great picture of the Brooklyn Bridge!!

Look at that Nepalese bridge! Yikes! I adore all of these photos. I have a thing for rail bridges – road trips are great for that.
