Mother in Law bridge
Mother-in-law Bridge, otherwise known as Teschin Bridge, can be found in Odessa in the Ukraine. Odessa is a port in the south of the country, on the Black Sea. It lies on hilly ground so there are many gullies or valleys in the city, with bridges crossing them like the one shown.
This one was originally called the Komsomolskiy Bridge because it links the Primorskiy Boulevard to the Komsomolskiy Boulevard. The reason given for the name is that the official who ordered the building of the bridge wanted a convenient short cut for visiting his mother in law. I think this must be unique in all the world.
