Pythonbrug, The Netherlands

From series “The Most Unusual and Strange Bridges on Earth”
Year: 2001.

A lot of beautiful and unusual bridges can be seen in Amsterdam. Among them, the python bridge or the snake-shaped bridge must be mentioned above all. The distinctive name of the bridge perfectly reflects its primary particularity. The metal bridge is characterized by the unusual serpentine shape. The bridge is equipped with beautiful railings with a lot of scarlet threads, which makes the figure even more attractive.

Pythonbrug, The Netherlands The bridge connecting Borneo Island with the Sporenburg Peninsula was opened in 2001. The bridge is located in the center of Amsterdam, next to the striking historical monuments. The workers of the architectural office West 8 decided a few years ago to refresh the center of the city and built this strange high-tech bridge, which reminds of the huge winding python.

The color of the bridge was chosen by chance and has no particular symbolic character. Within a few years 'Python' Bridge became a must for many excursion programs through Amsterdam and attracts not only the curious tourists, but also the construction workers from different countries. Like the other bridges of Holland, 'Python' is very solid and secure. Only high-strength steel was used during the construction of the bridge Next - Aiola Island
