Three suspension pedestrian and cyclist bridges built in Sweden and in the Czech Republic are described in terms of their architectural and structural solution, static and dynamic behaviour, and technology of their construction. The bridges with span length up to 179 m have slender decks which are fix connected with suspension cables. The dynamic analysis proved that all structures are comfortable to users and they have a sufficient aerodynamic stability. The footbridges are structurally efficient, they are light and transparent, correspond to the scale of the landscape and the structural members have human dimensions.
