Have you ever walked to the edge of the Morava River in Slovakia and wanted to cross the border into Austria? Me neither, but if you’ve been to the area, you will notice there is no bridge. Not any more:
Slovaks have been voting overwhelmingly in favour of naming a new pedestrian and cycling bridge near their capital after 1980s U.S. action film and TV star Chuck Norris.
The two other top names in the running for the bridge, which will span the Morava river and cross the border to Austria, were Maria Theresa after an Austro-Hungarian empress and the Devinska cycling bridge in honour of the closest village.
The Chuck Norris Bridge: Yes, you can cross it, but not twice. . .
