World’s Most Bizarre Streets

4936

There are so many beautiful places in the world, and there are also lots of bizarre ones. Some of them are remarkable for the unusual streets. For example, this is Lombard Street which is situated in San Francisco, a quite hilly city. This street is a 27 degree hill, moreover, it has eight “acute” turns. This makes Lombard Street the most twisting street in the US.
