Istanbul: Bosphorus Bridge (1973)

Connecting Europe and Asia, the Bosphorus Bridge was the world's 4th longest (the longest outside USA) suspension bridge when completed in 1973.

Bosporus Bridge is not only a very important part of the scenery of modern Istanbul - it's one of the best points to have a really good view over Istanbul. But it also was a good place to jump down to kill yourself, so it's closed for walking ;-(
But every year thousands (last year they said about 40 000 000) people join the Avrasya Marathon from asian Part to european part of Istanbul just to enjoy walking from Asia to Europe ...

And it's worth the little walk:



Let's hope for a better view this year ;-)

Avrasya Marathon again ...

Again there was a avrasya marathon yesterday, thousands walking over the bridge, where generally only cars are allowed - and thousands taking pictures from different places, taking pictures on the bridge showing the great view and taking pictures of the bridge itself ...
Here's one of these pictures:

One of the most beautiful bridges in the world . If I rate - 9.5/10 !

We looked at mountains until dawn, and then when dawn came, it was too pretty for me - there was pink and blue and gold, in the sky, and on icy places, brilliant pink and gold flashes, and the snow was colored too, and I said," Oh," and sighed; and each moment was more beautiful than the one before; and I said, " I love you, Momma." Then I fell asleep in her arms.
That was happiness then.

There are two bridges like that over Bosporous, aren't they?
and if yes, the second bridge is of the same type?

Btw some photos here are outdated right now, because bridge is painted to white(or light grey) which was its original color. The second bridge was also white, so both bridges are same color right now.
