Dragon Bridge in Vietnam
I hear dragons don’t exist. No, they don’t. There are, and certainly one of them, and we know where. Don’t you believe it? Check, I think your eyes won’t fool you.
Da Nang is a city on the South China Sea in central Vietnam. It has the largest seaport in this part of the country. It is here that the biggest bridge in the country was opened on March 29, 2013. However, there would be nothing unusual about it if it wasn’t for its shape.
The bridge was built to commemorate the 38th anniversary of the acquisition of coastal cities by North Vietnam in the final phase of the Vietnam War. The entire project was launched in June 2009 and cost nearly $85 million. It was designed Group, an American company. Extending over 666 meters in length and 37.5 meters in width, the structure weighs almost 9,000 tons.
The dragon itself is modelled on the shape of one of the Ly dynasties, which flies towards the East Sea. Interestingly, the dragon’s head can shoot both fire and water. At night, its silhouette is illuminated by 2500 LED bulbs.
