The Netherlands:

Is this actually a bridge? Where in the world could it be?
 
Its Mozesbrug (Moses Bridge), Halsteren, Netherlands
 
Invisible bridge parts the waters, invoking biblical images and preserving the ominous feel of an ancient moat.
 
The bridge, made completely out of waterproof wood, lies like a trench and disappears into the landscape, but from the vantage point of above or either end, the bridge parts the waters, reminiscent of the prophet it named after.
 
In the case that you are lacking the faith to walk down into and under the water line, the RO&AD architects who designed the bridge assure that flooding would not be an issue.
 
The height of the water is controlled by adjustable dams at both sides of the moat, ensuring that when the water rises, it reaches the dams before the bridge, which also includes a pump just in case the dams overflow.
