When it comes to describing unique attractions of Vancouver, we simply cannot fail to mention beautiful bridges. There are more than twenty bridges in the city in total. Lions Gate Bridge is, without a doubt, the most grandiose structure among them. The length of the bridge estimates 1823 meters. During a day about 60,000 vehicles drive through the bridge; it is decorated with large figures of lions, so tourists also like it. The construction has got its name after Lion Mountain, which located nearby. The mountain is also an important destination of excursions.
Ironworkers Memorial Bridge is, without a doubt, the most famous pedestrian bridge of the city. There are also three movable bridges in Vancouver - Burrard Bridge, Granville Bridge and Cambie Bridge. The famous Capilano Bridge is known as the hallmark of Vancouver. The construction of this bridge was completed in 1889. Plank bridge is built over a deep canyon, so a walk through it promises a lot of vivid impressions.
The biggest part of architectural sights is located in Gastown Street. This is where miners built their first houses. This part of the city has retained its inexpressible atmosphere of adventure.
