The highway bridge across the Golden Horn in Vladivostok is one of the largest cable-stayed bridges in the world and has a record length of the main span. A bridge crossing connected Cape Churkin with the city center, making it possible to get from one area to another by car in a few minutes.


The idea to build a bridge in Vladivostok arose back in the 19th century, since the city was of strategic interest: trade routes from east to west passed here, and warships were based. But its implementation at different times was hampered by political and economic factors. They returned to the issue of building the bridge in the 2000s as part of the city's preparation for the APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation) summit.

The project was developed by a consortium consisting of four organizations: Lengiprotrans OJSC, Giprostroymost Institute CJSC, Primorgrazhdanproekt OJSC and Leonhardt, Andrä und Partner from Germany.

Main characteristics of the bridge:

  • length of the bridge - 1,381 m;
  • length of the main span - 737 m;
  • height of the main span above sea level - 64 m;
  • the height of the pylons from the level of the grillages is 226 m.


On August 11, 2012, the grand opening of the Golden Bridge, which became one of the symbols of Vladivostok, took place.
