Widest waterfall & Brick bridge in Europe!

Recommended Posts

Venta Rapid (Latvian: Ventas rumba) is a waterfall on the Venta River in Kuldiga, Latvia. It is the widest waterfall in Europe at 249 metres (817 ft), and becomes as wide as 270 metres (886 ft) during spring floods. The height of the falls vary from 1.80 to 2.20 metres (5 ft 11 in to 7 ft 3 in) depending on the level of water in the river. 

 

240 m from the waterfall is located the famous Kuldiga brick bridge. It was built in 1874 and is the longest operating brick bridge in Europe. Built to the building standards of the time it's wide enough for two carriages to pass. Its width is 8 m and its length is 164 m. It was modeled after the bridge on Moselle river in Germany that was erected at the time of Roman Empire. Kuldiga brick bridge was renovated in 2008 and is now in operation.

Waterfall needs something to give it scale in the early shots. The video does not give a good sense of how big it is until you get to the shot that includes the bridge (IMO).
