Devil’s Bridge or Die-Rakotzbrücke in Germany. The Devil’s Bridge (Rakotzbrücke) was built almost 150 years ago, back in 1860. Because of the unique construction accuracy, the bridge and its reflection merge into a perfect circle, regardless of the point of observation. Devil’s Bridge is a term applied to dozens of ancient bridges, found primarily in Europe. Most of these bridges are stone or masonry arch bridges and represent a significant technological achievement. Each of the Devil’s Bridges has a corresponding Devil-related myth or folktale.

*!*!****#%*DOES CONTAIN SPOILERS!!***!!!#
All ya’ll complaining about how “scary” Zaheer is and how “uncalled for” the scene with him killing the corrupt Earth Queen was.
I honestly feel like I’m the only person who thoroughly enjoyed the whole episode. In fact, EP09 & EP10 of Book 3 have been the best chapters of Legend of Korra since Book 2, EP07&08 (“Beginnings”/Avatar Wan) in my opinion.
I think Zaheer is actually my favorite character introduced in the Avatar timeline since Amon. His motivation and backstory is much more complex than the whole LOK series has been for the past two books. I appreciate how they didn’t decide to make him a one dimensional character like they did with Unalaq. I actually appreciated the fact that the Red Lotus broke down the family&nation-separating interior walls and dismantled the almost caste-like system of Ba Sing Se. Hopefully after the expected looting by the poorest people, the city can find stability through its new unified state.
-Oh btw, and as far as everyone being so shocked by the Queen’s death, she was not, and I repeat, WAS NOT, the first character to have an on screen death as far as LOK is concerned, let alone characters from A:TLA. Get with it. Do you not remember the MURDER-SUICIDE scene from the season finale of LOK’s Book 1 where Tarrlok decided to commit suicide and simultaneously kill his brother Amon via EXPLOSIVES on a boat?! That was shocking. This was nothing.
"This is a kid’s show!" MY ASS. I think you guys need a refresher.
In just Legend of Korra alone, 1)Amon, 2)Tarrlok, 3)Unalok, 4)I’m sure there were others 5)The Earth Queen…..all had on screen deaths.
Not to mention in A:TLA, the most honorable mention was 1)Jet, who died IN FRONT OF his friends & team Avatar- (albeit the ambiguity, most of the fandom agrees that death was his fate), 2) Princess Yue, 3) Admiral Zhau, 4) Avatar Roku, 5) The Moon Spirit (sure, it was a fish, but it was a damn important fish). On top of those, there was so much talk involving death of people and many scenes of “implied” death of many, nameless people and loved ones of many characters introduced in both series, whether in real-time battle scenes or backstories.
The Avatar series/world (A:TLA&LOK) is THE darkest “kids shows” that deal with very mature subject matter and always have. Dealing with death is nothing new for this show.& if you were freaked out by the imagery of bending away someone’s breath, how the hell did you sit through Hama’s and Katara’s bloodbending? NOW THAT WAS FREAKY AND COULD KILL YOU THE SAME WAY BREATHBENDING DID.
Episode 10: Long Live Ghazan the Lavabender
No votes for Ghazan when I asked who is your favorite Red Lotus member, but he’s pretty awesome. Ghazan needs more love.
