#31 of 70 in Things to do in Rouen
Pont Gustave Flaubert is a vertical-lift bridge over the River Seine that officially opened in September of 2008 after four years of work. The bridge location chosen ensures that it is the last crossing before the river flows to the open sea. The bridge serves a similar purpose to that of the venerable Tower Bridge in London--providing a visit break between port and city. Plan a Rouen trip in moments using our itinerary builder.

  • in the context of the landscaped around docks, this bridge is a monument in itself - very nice view on the docks

  • In addition to prominent cathedrals I still collect and notable bridges. During the last trip was able to drive (and even make photo) on the impressive bridge "Normandy" and here is another, and this unique bridge in Rouen. Why unique? Gustave Flaubert bridge is sliding, rather it is a bridge-elevator where rises vertically up one of its parts (Central) length of 116 m. This allows you to pass under the bridge on the river Seine vessels even of big size. Don't think this happens continuously, year is you can see a couple of dozen times and always with a large gathering of people. The span of the bridge can be raised to a height of as much as 55 m for about 15 minutes, and then the River would pass even sailboat, heading for the famous regatta "Ruanskaja Armada". This bridge, recommend drove on it, in the ordinary form, of course, nothing special, and its length is not great-a total of 670 m.
