Bridges of Saint Petersburg - Palace (Dvortsoviy) Bridge

Probably the most famous bridge across Neva River, Palace Bridge is the second constant drawing bridge in St. Petersburg. The first wooden bridge on this site appeared in 1896 and was named after the Winter Palace. The modern construction by the engineer A. Pshenitsky was mounted in 1916, though the decoration of the bridge was not finished yet.

250 meters long and 28 meters wide, with quite simple design, the Palace Bridge is one of the symbols of Saint Petersburg. During the white nights the two raised wings of Palace Bridge with the golden spire of Cathedral in Peter and Paul's Fortress in between is the most popular scene for making photos. Nowadays the Palace Bridge is not only the symbol of the city and tourist attraction, it's also one of the busiest transportation arteries of the city, connecting city center and Admiralteysky district with Vasilievsky Island.

NB! You can visit this bridge during city tours,tours to Hermitage or boat tours.
