First Bridge over the Yangtze River

Wuhan Yangtze River Bridge, linking the Sheshan Hill and the Guishan Hill, is, in the history, the first bridge that crosses over the Yangtze River. The completion of the 1670-meter-long bridge is under 2 years’ efforts with the assistance of the former Soviet Union. Since the operation in the year of 1957, this special bridge for road and railway purpose has come across many changes and is said can hold on for at least another 100 years.

Wuhan Yangtze River Bridge is reputed as the first bridge over the third world’s longest river, which can provide the ideal angle for you to admire the marvelous sights of the Yangtze River. The railings of the sidewalks along the bridge are carved with various figures and patterns, such as the Phoenix in Morning Sun, the Peacock Spreading Tail and Fish Jump over the Lotus, all of which is a reflection of the local culture and customs.
