Zhaozhou Bridge

Zhaozhou Bridge, also known as Anji Bridge, is the oldest and largest stone arch bridge in the world, located on the Xiao River in Zhaozhou, Hebei. The Zhaozhou Bridge is 9.6 meters wide and 50.82 meters long with the span of the large stone arch measuring 37.37 meters in the middle. Each end also has two smaller symmetrical arches. Carriages and carts are able to pass in the middle while pedestrians can traverse on both sides. Li Chun was the artisan in charge of designing and building the bridge. He lived in the Sui Dynasty, more than 13,000 years ago.
This Zhaozhou Bridge was a remarkable achievement in ancient Chinese history and helped to pave the way for bridge construction in other parts of the world. The next bridge of its type to appear was not until the 14th century in Europe. The Zhaozhou Bridge survived at least eight wars, ten major flood and numerous earthquakes in the next 1400 years, but it's still in good shape and serving for the transportations.
