The Yavuz Sultan Selim bridge is seen on August 26, 2016 in Istanbul during its inauguration.
The bridge -- technically a hybrid between a suspension and cable-stayed bridge -- is an architectural marvel spanning the steep banks of the Bosphorus at the entrance to the Black Sea. It is the widest suspension bridge in the world with a width of 58.5 metres (192 feet). Its span of 1,408 metres (4,619 feet) is the longest in the world between the supporting pylons. / AFP / OZAN KOSE (Photo credit should read OZAN KOSE/AFP/Getty Images)
