• What is the most crooked streets of the world
In the US city of San Francisco Russian Hill is the most crooked streets in the world. Lombard Street - the name of this famous street, which has a 27% slope, and on it is limited by the speed of 8 kilometers per hour.
The design of the street has been suggested by some by Karl Henry in 1992 to smooth the 27% slope of the hill on which it is located.
This was done not only for cars, but for pedestrians who are more comfortable to walk on roads with slopes up to 16%.
In the 400 meters Lombard Street is one-way traffic, as much as 8 sharp turns and the speed limit is 8 km / h
In 2001, the city authorities wanted to close the street and do for directions, but then limited to a ban on parking in the area.
The most curve street in the world (although it is a moot point), but also amazingly beautiful. On both sides of the serpentine of the red brick planted trees, neatly trimmed shrubs. It is particularly beautiful in the spring and summer, when the flowers bloom numerous.
is a local point of interest is usually included in the mandatory tourist programs.
