Bratislava - Novy Most Bridge

Bratislava - Novy Most Bridge

The Novy Most bridge is a road bridge over the Danube in Bratislava. It is the 32nd-tallest, and thus shortest, member of the World Federation of Great Towers, and is the only bridge to be a member. It is the world's longest cable-stayed bridge to have one pylon and one cable-stayed plane. The bridge was built between 1967 and 1972 and officially opened on August 26, 1972, as the second bridge over the Danube in Bratislava. A special attraction is its flying saucer-shaped structure housing a restaurant, called "UFO" on the bridge's 84.6 metre pylon. The restaurant is reached using an elevator situated in the left pillar, and offers a good view over Bratislava. In the right pillar there is an emergency staircase with 430 stairs.
