The Golden Bridge in Vladivostok was open for pedestrians during holidays. 75th anniversary of Primorsky Krai was celebrated in Vladivostok. For the time of celebrations from October 19, 22:00 to October 21, 5:00 the movement of vehicles on the bridge across the Golden Horn Bay was temporarily stopped.

      Giving the Golden Bridge to pedestrians during the holidays has become a tradition in Vladivostok. For example, during the May-Day demonstration over 35,000 people from Primorskiy Krai took part in the parade on Golden Bridge. On Vladivostok birthday an enormous flash mob on the bridge gathered together 27,000 city dwellers.

      On regular days, walking on the bridge is also allowed for pedestrians, but only along special footpaths.

      The Golden Bridge is cable-stayed bridge across the Zolotoy Rog bay in Vladivostok, Russia. The Golden Bridge was one of two bridges along with the Russky Island Bridge built in preparation for the 2012 APEC summit. Construction of the bridge began on the 25 July 2008 and the bridge was officially opened on 11 August 2012.

      Length - 1388.09 m.

      Top of suspension towers: 226.25 m.

      Two giant cable-stayed bridges were built in preparation for the summit, namely the Golden bridge over the Zolotoy Rog Bay in the center of the city, and the Russky Island Bridge from the mainland to Russky Island (it is the longest cable-stayed bridge in the world right now).
