Apollo Bridge, Bratislava

3.6
Apollo Bridge in Bratislava is a road bridge over the Danube in the capital of Slovakia. It is located between the Starý most and Prístavný most Bridges, a site which allowed almost perpendicular bridging, resulting in the shortest possible span.Construction of the bridge began in 2003. The bridge was opened to the public on September 5, 2005. It is named for the "Apollo" oil refinery which was situated on the left river bank in this area before World War II. Its curved lines, inclined arches and virtual absence of right angles make the geometric shape of the bridge very sophisticated. In an unprecedented maneuver, the 5,240-ton steel structure, spanning 231 metres, was rotated across the river from its construction site on the left bank into its final position on a pillar 40 metres from the right bank. The Apollo Bridge was the only European project named one of five finalists for the 2006 Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement Award by the American Society of Civil Engineers.

  • Very nice bridge modern style that visually striking but which, in my opinion, has no particular architectural or cultural value. Very striking at night when it is lit up and why it is in walking distance from the old city by creating a special effect modern/old.

  • Apollo bridge is the newest bridge of Bratislava which can walk around the car. Another landmark of Bratislava which connects the left and right bank of the Danube. Has no pillar in the Danube River is not suitable for walking.

  • In terms of moving by car or public transport bridge is very convenient-you'll quickly find yourself from the District of Stare place in Petrzalka. But I do not advise to use the bridge if you want to get from one area to another on foot, especially if you are in a hurry. If you just walk, ornate walkway that pedestrians, cyclists will take you very far-more importantly, patience).
