The world's longest suspension bridge was opened, accessible only to pedestrians

The longest pedestrian suspension bridge in the world was opened in the Sochi National Park in Russia.

The span of the bridge is 520 meters long, and over 740 tons of metal and 2,000 cubic meters of concrete were used for its construction lasting two years. Being a part of AJ Hackett Sochi Skypark, the project was made together with employees from New Zealand.

The bridge and the bungee platforms on it are supported by eight 52 mm thick cables, each of which is estimated to be up to 300 tonnes.

In addition to the picturesque views of the Caucasus and the Black Sea coast, visitors can take advantage of several bungee jumping places available on the bridge, given the fact that the structure is 207 meters above the ground.

Other attractions available in the area include an interactive bungee jumping museum, an 18-meter climbing wall, an amphitheater or a restaurant on the edge of a canyon.
