Dolni Morava, Czech Republic: World’s Greatest Places 2022

After a several years of grounded vacation, choose it up a notch by strolling the world’s longest pedestrian suspension bridge, a new sky-higher architectural marvel in the Czech Republic.

Sky Bridge 721, which opened in May well soon after two decades of development, is a new attraction named for the 721 m (just about 50 percent a mile) it spans in the foothills of the Jeseniky Mountains. Hanging a lot more than 95 m earlier mentioned the cloud-shrouded valley and the Mlynsky Stream, it presents panoramic views on a heart-pumping walkway that is considerably less than 4 ft. extensive.

No climbing or skiing abilities are desired to get your mountain superior below. Bragging rights will only have to have a dose of braveness to wander across the bridge.

A 2.5-hour generate (about 124 miles) from Prague, Dolni Morava mountain resort on the Czech Republic–Poland border has previously been luring tourists with a appreciate of large-elevation thrills. Along with its ski slopes, it has an alpine roller coaster (purported to be Europe’s next longest), and another “walk in the clouds” attraction, the Sky Walk—a curved picket walkway and a 100-m-very long slide that descends 55 m in a twisting spiral. Sky Bridge 721 has usurped the present-day Guinness Environment Report for longest pedestrian suspension bridge, gaining 154 m on the previous record holder, Baglung Parbat Footbridge in Gandaki province, Nepal.
