Rio-Antirio Bridge is also a wonder of engineering art owing to several solutions applied to span the difficult site. These difficulties include deep water, insecure materials for foundations, seismic activity, the probability of tsunamis, and the expansion of the Gulf of Corinth.
If you take the 2,880 m walk on the bridge, listening to the sound of the wind in the cables above you and the sound of the cars rushing by you; if you look from aside at its deck suspended on four pylons with white beams of five-span cables running from the four nodes 57 m up in the blue sky, you will agree with Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, who called architecture frozen music.

The latest one is Rio-Antirrio Bridge, which has the longest cable-stayed “suspended” deck in the world. Another reason to consider it as a New-Greek-Wonder-of-the-World is related to the wonder of converting dreams into reality. The dream of connecting Rio in Peloponnese and Antirrio in mainland Greece was generated by Charilaos Trikoupis, who served as Prime Minister of Greece seven times. It took 150 years for his idea to be realized, and wonderfully nobody forgot who was the author of this idea, and the bridge was inaugurated as
