Nový Most (Bratislava, Slovakia)


Built between 1967 and 1972, the Nový Most is a road bridge over the Danube and it is the world’s longest cable-stayed bridge to have one pylon and one cable-stayed plane. A special attraction is its flying saucer-shaped structure housing a restaurant.
Since its construction the bridge was called “Most Slovenského národného povstania” (English: Bridge of the Slovak National Uprising), although locally it was called New Bridge. In 1993, its name was changed by the Bratislava city Parliament to Nový Most (English: New Bridge) to unify its official name with the one actually used by the people.
