Do you know walking on water is a thing now?
Thanks to the brilliance of artists Christo Yavashev and Jeanne-Claude Denat de Guillebon, you can actually walk on water in Northern Italy. Also known as “Floating Piers”, that connects two small islands of Lake Iseo, is the bright yellow floating pathway made of 200,000 high-density polyethylene cubes that changes color throughout the day when wet and allows you to walk on water without any support or difficulty. Isn’t it one of the bestest things ever created?
The yellow floating pathway is made of plastic tubes and is 3 kilometers long that help you walk from one island to another. The idea of walking on water may sound new but Christo and his late wife started the idea 46 years back. Unfortunately, Jeanne-Claude passed away in 2008 from a brain aneurysm. But the amazing part is that it didn’t stop Claude from fulfilling his dream.
“We chose this lake because of its marvelous location, the islands reach hundreds of meters above the sea and only 2000 people live there,” Christo told CNN.
This floating pathway will surely leave tourists with some lifetime experiences.
