The Golden Gate Bridge is one of the world's most beautiful bridges, and is an engineering marvel. its soaring towers, sweeping main cables, and distinctive orange color have made it one of the most famous landmarks in the world.
the bridge spans the Golden gate strait, which is the entrance to the San Fransisco Bay from the pacfiic Ocean. the total length of the bridge is 2737 meters. the dream of spanning the Golden Gate Strait had been around for well over a century before the Golden Gate Bridge opened to traffic in 1937.
The foundation piers had to be sunk into the violent, pondering waters of the open sea, something that was thought to be impossible. Today, the resulting bridge provides a connection between San Fransisco and the surrounding northern counties. The Golden Gate Bridge is an internationally recognized symbol of San Fransisco.
