    An awesome bridge has opened in Russia. Anyone who decides to walk across the bridge gets to take in stunning views of the idyllic Sochi landscape and they also have the ability to bungee jump right off of it.

    What is being billed as “the longest pedestrian suspension bridge in the world” is now open in Russia. Those with a fear of heights would do well to avoid the incredible feat of engineering as the bridge soars 650 feet in the air and spans about 18 hundred feet across a river canyon. Anyone brave enough to walk across the bridge gets to take in the stunning views of Sochi National Park but that’s not all that adventure seekers can do.

    They also have the ability to bungee jump right off of it. The bridge bears a strong and modern appearance with thick metal supports and wire cables, complete with enclosed tubes and open viewing platforms.

    The impressive crossing is part of the Sochi Skypark and will reportedly feature other attractions like rope adventures and a climbing wall.

    Visitors walking the bridge can stop at a number of observation decks to check out the Caucasian mountains on one side and the Black Sea shore on the other.

    A special section is designated for those wanting to jump. Jointly operated by world renowned bungee company, AJ Hackett International, they’re outfitted with safety gear before leaping from the deck and plummeting towards the ground.

    What do you think of the concept?
