This Leonardo Da Vinci’s Bridge can be seen spanning E18, the highway between Oslo, Norway and Sweden in the township of Ås. This stunning bridge was originally designed by Leonardo Da Vinci, the artist of the Renaissance, in 1502 but never built. It was 500 years after when the Norwegian artist, Vebjorn Sand took the idea of building the bridge. It was unveiled on October 31, 2001.
The bridge serves as a pedestrian bridge over a highway in the town of Ås. It spans about 220 ft. long with a height of 26 ft. The Leonardo Da Vinci’s bridge honors both the Renaissance artist and the contemporary artist of all time.
Wla bang Marlene’s bridge sa inyo? Hahaha. My dream is to have a monument or edifice built in my honor pero kwidaw. buti pa si Da Vinci. Ginawan na sya ng pelikula, ginawan pa sya ng tulay. Kaswerteng bata nun. Mmmm.
Kahit bridge sa ilog, Jess, wala talaga, heheee! Iba na talagang sikat ano.
Sinabi mo pa. Pag sikat ka tlagang lahat ng glory mapapa-sayo. Hay buhay. Iba lang ang din naman ang saya ng simpleng buhay gaya natin. Pablog-blog. Paraket raket nang konti. Hahaha!

I didn’t know Leonardo designed bridges? LOL! At least now I know 🙂 Cool looking bridge though ….
Lol! Neither did I. I wouldn’t have known about it, hadn’t we travelled to Oslo the year before last.
Wow..I never knew that! Hehehe Nice bridge. Kudos Da Vinci!
Now we know, Rozella, hehee..
oh, you made me feel stupid!! LOL guess what, I thought Leonardo Da Vinci only painted Mona Lisa (among the famous ones). Never knew he designed that gorgeous bridge too.
Same here, Farah. I know Mona Lisa and The Last Supper were his, but never did I know that he had left sketches of many other things, including this sweeping pressed-bow bridge. 🙂
well…My, now we know! and the next time we see something exceptional, keep the options open- it could be another masterpiece of Da Vinci!

If that bridge was build during Leonardo’s time, I doubt it will be as useful and practical then as it is now. Just another thing to be impressed about him, don’t you think?
