Golden Horn Bay divides the city Vladivostok into two parts and prevents movement between the two parts of the city. The idea of building a bridge across the Golden Horn was launched in the late XIX century. But for a long time, the construction of the bridge was not started. Construction of the bridge began in 2008 and it was finished in 2012.
