TOP unique streets that got into the Guinness Book of Records

TOP unique streets that got into the Guinness Book of Records

Around the world there are many beautiful streets and avenues that amaze with their appearance and scale. In any city, you can easily find several streets with interesting architecture or breathtaking views. But there are unique and one-of-a-kind streets that attract no less attention of tourists. They deserved their popularity not with ideal facades of houses or width - on the contrary, they got into the Guinness Book of Records for completely different reasons.

Baldwin Street – the coolest street in the world

Unique in its shape, the street is located in Dundine, New Zealand. The concrete-covered Boludin Street stretches almost 360 meters in length, and the difference in heights on the street reaches 80 meters! The slope of the street in some areas reaches 38%, which attracted the attention of the whole world. You can find a lot of funny photos where locals demonstrate to the whole world how "cool" the street is in every sense.

Ebenezer Place – the shortest street on the planet

The length of the street, located in the city of Wick, Scotland, is 206 centimeters. On a short street there is only one entrance to the bistro, opened at the McCaze Hotel. Included in the book of records, the street does not cease to attract the attention of tourists from all over the world, and the name, translated from the Hebrew language as "caring", gives the place an additional charm.

Schroyerhofstrasse – the narrowest street on Earth

Appearing in 1727 and initially acting as a passage between houses, The Schroyerhofstrasse in its widest place is gaining 50 centimeters, and in the most cramped - only 31. The official status of the street to this place was given in 1820, and the walls can see signs confirming that the place is listed in the book of records as the narrowest street in the world.
