Pont Charles Albert - Le Pont de la Caille

In English / и на Български!

It is situated in one region of France that is rather touristic.

Thanks to Catherine-A you can read interesting information about one of the highest bridges in Europe. Pont Charles Albert was even the most high bridge on the world for 73 years between 1839-1912.

I our days this bridge is almost useless cause there are two other bridges to pass on over the river but however it remains one of the most interesting construction of engineering of the world and it worth to see it.

The only inconvenience you can have in France is with the language but I hope soon young people could learn at least English and to be helpful to all the tourists there.


Pont Charles Albert - Le Pont de la Caille

Намира се в един район на Франция, който е по-скоро туристически.

Благодарение на Catherine-A можете да прочетете интересна информация за един от най-високите мостове в Европа. Pont Charles Albert е бил най-високият мост в света в продължение на 73 години между 1839-1912.

В наши дни този мост е почти безполезен, тъй като в близост има още два моста заа преминаване над реката, но въпреки това той си остава една от най-интересните инжинерингови конструкции в света и си струва да се види.

Единственото неудобство, което може да имате във Франция е с езика, но се надявам скоро младите хора да научат най-малко английски и да бъдат от полза за всички туристи там.

mimipet.com, maybe you should learn about this bridge.

It was built and inaugurated in 1839 at the request of Charles Albert of Sardinia (Carlo Alberto di Savoia). At that time, The Savoy was part of the Kingdom of Piedmont-Sardinia.

This is one of the longest cable-stayed bridge in the world.

This bridge is used by pedestrians and cyclists. Cars and trucks use the other bridge.

It is true that the French people are wrong to speak foreign languages. I do not think it's laziness.

This is a problem of education in schools. The teaching of foreign languages ​​were beginning to college only until the last century. And teaching methods were stupid.

France has become aware of its deficiencies. Teaching is now at the age of 7 years, with an introduction from kindergarten.

I hope that soon, the French will welcome our foreign friends, in good conditions.

Thanks for the information and link you left here Catherine!

I already added it to the information of the bridge. It was really new information for me.

About language education I think in some sense it is world problem. It was so also in my native country Bulgaria but last 20 year the things changed and now young people usually knows some languages, of course not all. Hope it will change also in France soon.

Greetings from Torino, Mimi
