Some streets in the world are downright terrifying while the rest are beautiful simply because they are unique and sometimes, maze-like.
1. Gravity hills
Gravity hills are found all over the world. Those who have been on such streets will know that if you park your vehicle at its foot, an illusion will be created that will make you believe that the car or bike is actually going up the hill!
2. Ebenezer Place
This street is in Scotland and is considered to be the shortest in the world as it is only 6.8 feet long. Naturally, there is only one house on this tiny street which was constructed in 1883.
3. Pan-American Highway
If Ebenezer Place is the shortest street in the world, this one is the longest. Earlier a street in Japan held the title but over the years because of several changes, this one has replaced it. It stretches across 29,800 miles and goes through nations like El Salvador, USA, Mexico and 12 others.
4. Parliament Street
Parliament Street in England is said to be the narrowest of its kind in the world. It measures about 25 inches and is 50 meters in terms of length and has been around since the 1300s.
5. Road to Giza
Road to Giza is mesmerizing because it is about 46,000 years old which makes it the oldest paved street in the world. It stretches across 7.5 miles and was initially used for the movement of basalt from one location to another.
