Calgary's +15 Skywalk, Calgary
Categories: Bridges, Tourist Spots
At 18km (11mi), Calgary's +15 Skywalk represents an extensive pedestrian skywalk system. The network of 59 bridges, at an elevation of 4.5 m (15 ft) above the ground (hence the name), set an architectural precedent in 1970, when it was constructe. The covered skywalk system makes it easy to get from A to B quickly, or avoid bad weather. You can also go shopping, or stop for a drink or lunch at one of the many little stores and restaurants along the way. By using one of the three levels (there are +30 and +45 as well), you can experience an unusual view of the city.

He was very visionary, don't you think? After all, this is the longest Skywalk system in the world, with 16 km, then you understand why have so few people on the street. I confess that I thought it was very suffocating and as good girl that I am, I'm lost, I walked in circles and couldn't wait to get back to the street, hehehe. I imagine that when the temperature is at negative 30 I go find the best thing in the world.show original
