20 Of The World’s Most Marvelous Streets Shaded By Flowers And Trees

The beauty of nature transforms everyday streets into picturesque portraits fit for a postcard. While humans can construct lovely paved roads, and cute brick houses, our mastery of beauty can’t compete with the wondrous creations of nature.

Streets shaded by trees and flowers are gorgeous, but they are also ripe with other benefits as well. Tree-lined streets work as a great defense against urban pollution and heat-related problems, and they also increase evapotranspiration. Not to mention, they also encourage local residents to get fit by walking and cycling.

Check out 20 of the world’s most marvelous streets shaded by trees and flowers here!

3. Tunnel Of Love, Romania, Caras-severin

Once an abandoned train rail, this location has since turned into The Tunnel Of Love, one of the most romantic destinations on Earth. It is believed by many that if two lovers walk through the tunnel hand-in-hand, all of their wishes will come true.

The trees were formed long ago, back when the train still ran through these parts. Three times each day the train would roll on through, eventually shaping the trees as they are now.
