The World's Longest Pedestrian Suspension Bridge Just Opened — and It Spans More Than 2,000 Feet 

The world's longest pedestrian suspension bridge just opened in the Czech Republic, daring visitors to walk for nearly a half a mile at 300 feet above the ground.

The Sky Bridge 721, which opened last week and sits about a 3 hour drive from Prague, stretches for 721 meters (about 2,365 feet) and hangs 95 meters (about 311 feet) above the valley below. Visitors walk along the narrow, breathtaking bridge, crossing from one mountain ridge to another, supported by six main ropes and 60 wind ropes.

I walked across the Capistrano Bridge in British Columbia. I think that was about 900 feet.

Correction: It is called the Capilano Bridge and it is about 450 feet.
