Apollo Bridge, Bratislava

(3.6/5 based on 80+ reviews on the web)
Apollo Bridge in Bratislava is a road bridge over the Danube in the capital of Slovakia. It is located between the Starý most and Pristavný 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 new bridge with nice view to the river, castle and famous old bridge. It was bit difficult to find right place for parking but the view is amazing. 
  • This bridge is a lovely part of the night view from the castle. During the day, it is not something I would look for.
