A constant source of fascination for travelers everywhere, bridges have been around for ages, surpassing obstacles and giving our world continuity. As a tribute to their endless symbolism, we decided to gather 30 inspiring bridge photos. Just let your mind wonder through these nature-encircled bridges, some of which are perched above beautiful valleys, deep waters or troubled waterfalls. Via ferratas, bamboo bridges or unbelievable stone walkways- soothing natural alternatives to modern concrete structures overfilled with vehicles.

Some of them you may recognize (Capilano Suspension Bridge for example in Vancouver, Canada -fourth photo of the post- is a top attraction), but mainly we tried to stay off the beaten path. Even though they inspire adventure, restfulness or on the contrary- ultimate relaxation-in the end, these beautiful, nature surrounded bridges are a symbol of freedom more than anything else.
