Private Guided Night Tour of St. Petersburg Drawbridges

Like Venice, St. Petersburg is spread across a lot of big and small islands and it's hard to walk more than a few hundred meters without crossing a bridge! St. Petersburg has the largest number of bridges of any city in the entire world. With a total of 539 bridges (315 in the historical centre alone), not even Venice, Stockholm or Amsterdam can beat the city’s total! And more than 20 of all bridges are drawbridges. The elegance of some bridges can be compared only to the beauty of the city architectural ensembles. The bridges of St. Petersburg have become an integral part of the city.

      Stop At: Palace Bridge, Bolshaya Neva River Emb., St. Petersburg 190000 Russia

      The Palace Bridge connects Palace Square with the Spit of Vasilievsky Island. Owing to the proportions and forms, it harmonically blends with the ensembles of the Palace and University embankments. It is one of the most famous bridges in St. Petersburg: the silhouette of the drawn Palace Bridge with the belfry of the Peter and Paul Fortress in the middle is one of the remarkable features of the cityscape.

      The Liteiniy (Foundry) Bridge is the heaviest in the world. It was constructed in 1875-1879. The name to the bridge was given after Liteiniy Prospect, which occupies that part of the area where the foundry yards used to be. The Liteiniy Bridge was the first one in the city to be lighted with electric lamps. The railing of the bridge is made of cast iron, and it is decorated with bas-reliefs, depicting mermaids, carrying the coat of arms of the city.
