Stunning optical illusion

There are many such unusual places on our planet that attracts us because of its amazing structure and beauty. When we look at these places at first glance, we do not believe in our eyes. To stay in touch with these amazing places, we have to see these places over and over again.

The name of such an amazing place in Germany is called “The Rakotzbrücke”. It was built in 1860. It is also known as the Devil’s Bridge. Devil’s Bridge is a term applied to dozens of ancient bridges, found primarily in Europe. Most of these bridges are stone or masonry arch bridges and represent a significant technological achievement. Each of the Devil’s Bridges has a corresponding Devil-related myth or folktale.

The Rakotzbrücke is known as “Devil’s Bridge”, due to the colloquialism that such bridges were so miraculous that they must have been built by Satan itself. While this bridge was created by mortal hands, its builders did seem to hold the aesthetics of the bridge in higher regard than its utility. This jaw-dropping bridge uses its reflection to form a perfect circle.

This bridge is located in Azalea and Rhododendron Park Kromlau. Kromlau is a district of the Saxon municipality of Gablenz in the district of Görlitz. This Park is a 200-acre landscaped park in the municipality of Gablenz, Germany. The park is an example of an English garden and has many small ponds and lakes. The devil’s bridge was specially built during the mid-19th century to create a circle when it is reflected in the waters beneath it. Local lore often wrongly attributes these bridges to the Roman era, but in fact many of them are medieval, having been built between 1000 and 1600 AD. In medieval times some Roman roads were themselves considered beyond human capabilities and needs, and therefore had to have been built by the devil.

This bridge is famed for its unique construction accuracy and its reflection merging into a perfect circle, no matter where you see it from. The most bizarre trait of this bridge is its parabola. The parabola of the bridge is designed to be one half of a perfect circle. When the water beneath the bridge is calm and the light is right, it forms an illusion of a splendidly complete circle made of stone.

The Rhododendron Park has no entry fee and can be accessed any time. The area is very serene and extra quiet. There is no fee need be paid to enter the site, but in order to preserve it, the park’s most prominent feature is not allowed to cross the bridge. The Rakotzbrücke is a short walk from the free car parking area. The main parking area near the Rakotz Bridge is in the village of Kromlau.
