Prettiest Pedestrian Bridges On Earth

in Travel

Like museums and other architectures, bridges in general and pedestrian bridges in particular are iconic symbols of a country.

 

BP Bridge, Millennium Park, Chicago

Situated in the Midwestern United States, Chicago is known for being the center of business, finance and one of the world's top ten Global Financial Centers. Besides economic potential, the city of Chicago lies near the Great Lakes and the Mississippi River watershed that has earned the city a lot of nicknames such as “Windy City”, “The Second City” or “Chi-Town”. Among the iconic architectures like Millennium Park, Crown Fountain, “Big John” and Cloud Gate, the BP Bridge stands out for its unique architecture and design. The ultra-skinny minimalist footbridge connects the Millennium Park and the Art Institute of Chicago.
