Yangtze River Bridge (Chángjiāng dàqiáo)

Yangtze River Bridge (Chángjiāng dàqiáo) Review

Completed in 1968 at the height of the Cultural Revolution, this bridge was touted as a defining symbol of the spirit and ingenuity of the Chinese. Decorated in stirring Socialist-Realist style, huge stylized flags sculpted from red glass rise from the bridge's piers, and groups of giant-size peasants, workers, and soldiers stride forward heroically. The Great Bridge Park lies on the southern side; from here you can take an elevator up to the top or browse a gallery of old photographs. Bus No. 1 from the Confucian Temple takes you to the bridge.
