The strait itself was named after the Golden Horn of the Bosphorus in Istanbul, Turkey, which forms the city’s natural harbor. The harbor of San Francisco reminded explorer John C. Fremont of the other harbor across the Atlantic, so in 1846, he named it “Chrysopylae” in Greek, which translates to “golden gate.” He also wrote that the strait was a “golden gate to train with the Orient.”The 8,980-foot-long Golden Gate Bridge spanning the strait was completed in 1937. 16 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Featured image Select file Browse Click on image to update the captcha.
