Let’s be honest! No trip to London is complete without a photo looking out over the river Thames with London Bridge in the background. It is probably quite safe to say that London Bridge is the most popular landmark in England. This bridge is a symbol of pride for the English, as it is a constant reminder of their rich Victorian history.
The city of Florence was the home of many a great artist, and the Ponte Vecchio is certainly proof of this. This stunning medieval bridge spans the Arno River and is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the city. The bridge itself now has a multitude of shops selling luxury items, souvenirs and jewelry, which makes it a very busy place during peak tourist season.
Designer John Roebling spent around 15 years convincing the city’s council to let him complete his dream of building the world’s longest suspension bridge. Unfortunately, Roebling passed away before construction began, so his son Washington took over responsibility until he became ill. The bridge was eventually completed by Washington’s wife, Emily.
This bridge was actually a collaboration between an English and a French architect, and the final result is one which has been much appreciated by experts and tourists. Built in 2004, this bridge is now a symbol of pride for the people of France. At a whopping 343 meters high, this bridge is one of the world’s tallest and it runs through some of the most beautiful areas of rural France.
This stunning structure was built in the 17th century by Shah Abbas II, and, to this day, it is still a functioning dam that brings water to the gardens along the Zayandeh River. The center of the bridge is comprised of two large pavilions which were originally reserved for the Shah, but they are now open to the public.
