Day 314/18. Bridge acrobats.

Impressive sculptures on the Father Bernatek Footbridge (Kładka Ojca Bernatka) which straddles the Wisla River just south of the centre of Krakow, Poland, The leaf-shaped, 130m structure accommodates both pedestrians and cyclists with its twin walkway design by local architect Andrzej Getter. Though a source of controversy during its development (largely due to coming in over budget at a sobering 38 million złoty), the Bernatek bridge is now a beloved part of the urban landscape, both for its convenience and aesthetic appeal.
Since 2016, the bridge has been adorned with nine acrobatic, gravity-defying sculptures by Jerzy Kędziora, which move with the vibration of the foot traffic over the bridge.
