Our top view today is the one from Stanley Bridge. During the winter, one can enjoy this view during the warm morning sun, as well as chilly, rainy days.
Stanley Bridge is the first bridge in Egypt to be constructed over the sea, allowing natives and visitors to experience the architectural style of the cosmopolitan Egyptian city. It is considered by many to be a major part of the reconstruction and decoration of Alexandria beach.
The bridge is named after the district where it is built. It has four towers designed in the Islamic style by the famous constructing company Arab Contractors to compliment the royal palace in Al Montazah.
Stanley Bridge is 400 meters long and 30 meters wide, with a design that opens up hearts and invites visitors to go for a walk over the sea. The bridge was built with the aim of enlarging the Alexandria beachside, as the narrow two-way street by the walk was suffering from too much traffic.
There is an underpass near the bridge to allow pedestrians to safely cross to the other side. While walking along Stanley Bridge, you will see fishermen line up on the Bridge waiting for their catch of the day.On the other side, there are many local and international restaurants that allow you to dine to the stunning view of the Bridge over the Mediterranean Sea.
Over the years, Stanley Bridge has become one of the most remarkable landscapes in Alexandria, offering many recreational activities, like fishing.
