Golden Gate – Celebrate the Golden Gate Bridge, US

The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge that crosses the California Golden Gate Strait which is the junction between the San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean. And it connects the city of San Francisco, located at the northern tip of the San Francisco Peninsula in the city of Sausalito, located at the southern tip of the peninsula in Marin County. Funded by the WPA, its construction, which has faced many difficulties, began in 1933 and lasted over a period of four years to be completed in 1937. The Golden Gate Bridge was until 1964 the longest suspension bridge in the world, and is now the most famous landmark of San Francisco. It is also easily recognizable by its color “international orange” and the architecture of its two towers. According to a classification of the American Society of Civil Engineers, this work of art is one of the seven wonders of the modern world.
