The new bridge is 488.65 meters long and 42 meters high, and it has an platform that opens for ships. A rail system crosses the bridge along with several lanes for automobiles.
The bridge represents one of the traditional icons of Istanbul. It is a bridge that connects two cultures to each other: Old and new Istanbul. Under the bridge there are many fish restaurants, cafes, and pubs. Over the bridge many people come for fishing everyday. People sit on the Galata Bridge and enjoy their fish on the plate while they watch fishhooks flying and they gaze at the beautiful Golden Horn. At night it is more crowded and colorful with lights of the city all around.
