Dunedin, New Zealand is home to the steepest street in the world.

So you think you live on a steep street? So there is a road so steep that on the hot days asphalt would flow down hill so they have pave part of it with concrete.

New Zealand’s Baldwin Street is only 1150 feet long but you will short of breath after this hike considered the world’s steepest street by Guinness record. Baldwin street seemed as good idea on the paper. Its layout was surveyed by Charles Kettle in the mid-19th century. Just one problem, working in London he didn’t considered New Zealand terrain.

Now it is a big tourist attraction and place of different events.
