The main function of a bridge is to connect us to other places and a normal bridge is often straight but let's see some of the unique and extreme bridges in the world.
1. Storseisundet Bridge, Norway
The Storseisundet Bridge links the Norwegian lands and Averoya Island. You could say this bridge is the most horrible in the world because this bridge is formed curved with a very steep arch.
There is also an optical illusion so the bridge is also called 'Drunk Bridge' which is quite dangerous for the first time to cross it. When viewed from a distance, vehicles crossing this bridge seem to be cut off in the middle.
2. Twist Bridge, Netherlands

3. Langkawi Sky Bridge, Malaysia

6. Blinking Eye Bridge, UK
This bridge is actually named 'Gateshead Millennium'. Often called 'Blinking Eye Bridge' because the shape of the bridge is very similar to the eyes and eyelids that want to blink.
The location is above the River Tyne in England. Uniquely, this bridge can rotate by 40 degrees every 45 minutes, depending on the wind and ships that will cross the River Tyne. This bridge can only be passed by pedestrians and cyclists only because it is not able to accommodate too much burden.
7. Roller Coaster Bridge in Germany
This one bridge looks very much like a roller coaster ride, which is circular and also wriggles like a snake.
