A Picturesque Mountaintop Skywalk in the Czech Republic with a 330 Foot Slide Down (9 pics)




All images by Jakub Skokan, Martin Tuma / BoysPlayNice Extended over a cliff nearly 3,600 feet above sea level rests the Dolni Morava Sky Walk , a looping structure that allows visitors the opportunity to peek their heads into the clouds. Extending like an old-fashioned roller coaster from the  Kralicky Sneznik mountain in the Czech Republic, the architectural destination features panoramic views of the Morava river and Krkonose Mountains. Produced by  Franek Architects , the wood and steel walkway was designed to blend into the existing environment rather than upset the appearance of its natural surroundings. With a subtle slope and wide pathway, the structure also accommodates those in wheelchairs and strollers who want to explore the top. Unlike glass-bottom feats of architecture like China’s Haohan Qiao bridge and Chicago’s Willis Tower , the Sky Walk features a far more terrifying mesh floor that allows brave visitors to lay at the peak of the structure. In addition to this daredevil net, the walkway also features a 330 foot slide within its core, a streamlined metal chute that’s nearly 18 stories tall.
