Ladies and gentlemen, the world now has a fire-breathing dragon bridge. Everybody go home, show’s over: Vietnam won the art of bridge design.

In honor of the 38th anniversary of the end of the Vietnam War, Da Nang City unveiled a 666 meter-long dragon-shaped bridge on Friday according to Design Taxi.

The bridge was designed to resemble dragons from Vietnamese folklore. And so, in addition to a stunning bridge that looks like a dragon, the bridge’s dragon head also releases fire and shoots out water out of its mouth.
