The bridge is so narrow that pedestrians only cross the ‘Sky Bridge 721’ in one direction. The bridge is considerably longer than a pedestrian bridge in Nepal, which at 567 meters is currently the world’s longest pedestrian bridge.
At Polish border
The pedestrian bridge is part of the Dolni Morava ski area, not far from the Polish border. Those who have crossed the bridge walk back to the starting point via the surrounding mountains.
The construction of the bridge cost about eight million euros. Thanks to steel cables with a thickness of eight centimeters, a maximum of five hundred people can stand on the bridge at the same time. As a precaution, a maximum of 250 people will be allowed on the bridge during the first two weeks.
Cable car and observation tower
In addition to the bridge, there is also a 55 meter high wooden watchtower, cable car and mountain bike trail at the Czech ski resort.
