"Anichkov Bridge" Bridges Tip by call_me_rhia

Bridges, Saint Petersburg: 34 reviews and 65 photos


Anichkov Bridge was the first bridge to be built on the Fontanka Canal; you'll recognise it easily because of the four horse sculptures. It was originally made of wood and was designed by... Anichkov, Peter the Great's chief engineer.

Of the old bridge only the name is left - and the one we see today is the third version of it, and it is now a draw-bridge.

Address: Anichkov Most
Directions: on the fontanka canal - nievskji prospekt

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
