There’s nothing more simple than the concept of stairs. The more breathtaking it is to see how different staircases can be - how they ideally fit into the setting. And when you know that some of them are ancient, and millions climbed them before you…

We present to you a collection of world’s most unique starts - new and old, high-tech and plain stone. If you’re afraid of height, no need to climb them physically - take a look with us.
