Marco Polo Bridge China, Beijing

Marco Polo Bridge

The Marco Polo Bridge or Lugou Bridge is a stone bridge located 15 km southwest of Beijing city center in the Fengtai District. It bridges the Yongding River, a major tributary of Hai River. Situated at the eastern end of the bridge is the Wanping Fortress, a historic 17th-century fortress, with the Museum of the War of Chinese People's Resistance Against Japanese Aggression inside.

In recent years, the water of Yongding River has been diverted to different areas of Beijing so often there is no water under the bridge.
