The bridge over Zolotoy Rog Bay in Vladivostok

The bridge over Zolotoy Rog Bay is a cable-stayed bridge in Vladivostok. The construction of the bridge began July 25, 2008 as part of the city’s preparations for the APEC summit in 2012.

The bridge was officially opened on August 11, 2012. The length of the bridge is 1388.09 meters; total amount of funding – about $ 620 million. Photos by Smit Smitty

The idea of building a bridge over Zolotoy Rog Bay originated in the late 19th century. At different times, the construction was prevented by the Russian-Japanese War, the First World War, Revolution, the Second World War II and Perestroika.

    Great photos! It’s fascinating how Vladivostok is having all this investment just now, I think it’s a longer term project than the APEC conference; Russia is looking to the East for commerce whilst the rest of Europe is in a downturn.

    I had been in Vladvostok, Russia in 2010.
    City of Vladivostok is very old town and many damaged buildings by war long time. I had seen new bridge in Vladivostok before completing on it.
    I will visit there again next year.
