This three-span bridge crossing the Neva River was the first of its kind in St. Petersburg, with unique features such as its fast-rising middle span, gigantic arched girders and two granite, Romanesque-style towers designed to resemble lighthouses.

Best to see from the river(cruise). In a city which is full of bridges and lots of nice ones too, this is one of the nicest one.

Magnificent structure and we had a close-up look at the bridge as we did a cruise which takes us to the underneath of the bridge. Definitely worth viewing it via a cruise.
