Lanzhou Zhongshan Bridge
Introduction to Lanzhou Zhongshan Bridge (兰州中山桥)
The Zhongshan Bridge is located at the foot of Baita Mountain in the north of Lanzhou City. It is called No. 1 Bridge on the Yellow River, which makes it a landmark of Lanzhou. Before the iron bridge was set up, there is a floating bridge for crossing the Yellow River. The floating bridge was built in Ming Dynasty. Its 3-meter long iron pillar still stands there with a mark “Ninth Year of Hongwu Emperor”. In the reign of Emperor Guangxu in Qing Dynasty, the floating bridge was changed to the current iron bridge. The iron bridge has four piers and steel arched girder. Walking on the bridge and have a overlook at the Yellow River, is is one of the most beautiful Lanzhou tourist attractions.
