Each of bridge has a history of its own, and their similarities that have a very longstanding history.

Perhaps you do not need to remember alot. You can just know this is the first steel bridge across the Red River in Hanoi, and was built in Vietnam's French colonial period (1898-1902). Originally, the bridge was named Doumer, named after Governor General of Indochina, Paul Doumer.

After 1945, this bridge is called the Long Bien. For over one century, this bridge is still remained intact.

Long Bien bridge became a symbol of Hanoi. It is associated with many memories of Hanoi people, not only in war, but also in everyday life.

Note that Red River Bridge is one of the most beautiful places to view sunrise and watch sunset in Hanoi.

Every morning, thousands of farmers and street vendors usally cross this bridge from the other side, go to Hanoi's Old Quarter to sell their goods and agricultural products.

For architecture, this bridge is nothing special, but it's became more beautiful than because being across the biggest river in Hanoi, Red River.
