Moses Bridge Astonishingly Splits Water

Ever wonder what it felt like to follow Moses? Well, though it’s not the Red Sea, the Moses Bridge, located in the Netherlands, is quite the sight to see. Appropriately titled, the bridge gives visitors a truly unique experience when visiting a close 17th century fort. Designed by architecture group RO & AD, the bridge is constructed out of Accoya wood, a high technology wood that is supposedly harder and more durable than some of the best tropical woods. It is treated with a nontoxic anti-fungal coating.

From a distance, the Moses Bridge appears to vanish, allowing the viewer to see the flow of the moat uninterrupted. As one approaches though, the sunken bridge becomes apparent. It splits the waters allowing for a unique walk to the historic sight across the way. This bridge would be very cool to experience firsthand, though I think I would be just a little bit nervous when crossing the moat.
