The Zolotoy Bridge is cable-stayed in Vladivostok, Russia. The bridge spans the Zolotoy Rog (Golden Horn Bay) and connects Vladivostok with the industrial and residential area of the Churkin Peninsula. The Golden Horn Bridge is the most famous in Vladivostok due to its important location and the view of the bay, but it is not the biggest bridge in the city. This post will introduce more about the size of the bridge.
As early as 1959, Nikita Khrushchev, the leader of the Soviet Union, demanded that Vladivostok be built into "the San Francisco of the Soviet Union." In 1969, the Zolotoy Bridge was listed in the urban development plan.
Construction of the Zolotoy Bridge began on July 25, 2008. Together with the Russky Bridge, it was one of the projects in the preparation plan for the 2012 APEC Summit. The Zolotoy Bridge was officially opened on August 11, 2012. This bridge ended the history of no roadway between the north and south sides of the Golden Horn.
Description of The Zolotoy Bridge Size
The Golden Horn Bridge, with V-shaped bridge towers, connects the two banks of the Golden Horn Bay in the center of Vladivostok and echoes with the Russky Bridge, which greatly shortens the transit time between the main city and the Russky Island. In 2012, the two bridges were completed, which welcomed the APEC summit that year. The main venue of the summit was set up at the Far Eastern Federal University on Russky Island. Hundreds of strings-like stay cables have made Zolotoy Bridge a new landmark in the city. The unique towers of this bridge can be seen in almost every corner of the city.
