Nowadays, you will not surprise anyone with drawbridges. And we have them in Russia, and in Europe. Nevertheless, they are no longer as relevant as, say, robots. Instead of bridges, there will now be architectural structures that have the "brain" of a robot.
In Leeuwarden, which is located in Holland, people are lucky to enjoy such a drawbridge. It is worth saying that it looks more like a giant transformer from a sci-fi movie than a bridge. And although the bridge is miniature in size, it looks intimidating at first. Then, looking closer, we realize that the bridge cannot be dangerous. On the contrary, it is extremely convenient. Although it is said that this is a robot, it is difficult to believe that it controls itself. Surely, people are sitting who press buttons, and the bridge is transformed in the air. The work itself takes place due to a special lever (a very large lever), which lifts this "piece" of asphalt into the air.
After all, it was not for nothing that he received the name "Flying Bridge"! The idea, although quite simple, is very amazing even today. And crowds of people always come to see the most ordinary bridges, and here - such a small miracle. And for some reason it is quite understandable that it did not appear anywhere, but in Holland. To be honest, I immediately wanted to visit this town, cross the bridge, and also swim under it. There is something unusual about this. Although it is time for the creations of architecture to stop being surprised - if skyscrapers are built every day in the world, then it is a simple bridge … Although it is still not simple.
