Lanzhou lies in the eastern part of Gansu Province along the Yellow River. On the map, the long, narrow province that carried Marco Polo to the eastern Middle Kingdom bears a slight resemblance to Italy. The foot of Gansu's 'boot' sits squarely between Qinghai and Shaanxi provinces, while its long, crooked leg reaches all the way to Xinjiang Province.

Have a Yellow River Tour in Lanzhou. Visit to Zhongshan Bridge, the First Bridge over the Yellow River. Before Zhongshan Bridge was built there were many floating bridges over the Yellow River, but only one existed for a relatively long period.

This new bridge is what we call the First Bridge over the Yellow River. Yellow River Mother Sculpture, it was appraised as a piece of excellent work in the First Chinese City Sculpture Design Contest.
