Andong, North Gyeongsang Province
Opened in 2003, Andong's Woryeonggyo Bridge (387 metres in length and 3.6 metres in width) is the longest pedestrian overpass made of wood in Korea. Woryeonggyo Bridge harbours a tragic yet beautiful legend about a wife who made a pair of Mituri (hemp shoes) out of her hair in heartfelt yearning and condolence for her late husband. In commemoration of her pure and noble love, the bridge was designed in the style of Mituri. At the centre of the bridge is the Woryeongjeong Pavilion.
