Zhivopisny Bridge is a cable-stayed bridge that spans Moskva River in north-western Moscow, Russia. It is the first cable-stayed bridge in Moscow. Opened on 27 December 2007 as a part of Krasnopresnensky avenue. It is also the highest cable-stayed bridge in Europe.Design and specificationsThe bridge is unique in that most of its length runs along the river, not across it . Thus the bridge and highway it carries will bypass the protected territory of Serebryany Bor island.Total length of an S-shaped deck exceeds 1.5 kilometers, including a 409.5-meter long, 47-meter wide main section running 30 meters above and along the centerline of river Moskva. The main pylon is a 105-meter high arch across the river, carrying the weight of deck through 78 cablesUnder the top of the arch, there is a disk-like structure that was intended to house a restaurant. The restaurant project is now abandoned due to fire safety concerns and lack of investment.

    Lead to bridge American friend! Not tired to photograph and admire! Architecture and landscape okrazhajushhij create unforgettable images! Travelling by bus from 850 m. Kropotkinskaya, left before the bridge and went to the bridge on foot. Marched across the bridge back and forth. Turned out to be a great trip with lots of impressions and great pictures!

    Yesterday rode in Krylatskoye to friends through this really well, very Picturesque bridge. That's decided to take 2 pictures of such beauty from the Interior of the machine, even when the opportunity arises! He reminded me of cable-stayed bridges of St. Petersburg: Bridge, Lazarevsky on WHSD around St. Petersburg arena!

    Love this place. Northwest of Moscow, the picturesque street is my "little homeland" for several dozen years my family has lived in the area. Watched as the bridge was being built; focus on bridge, walking on Silver. The bridge had to go stand in the many hours of traffic jams, but our bridge! I'd like to finally climb up and look out from under the arch bridge on beauty!

Where to stay in Moscow

The capital of Russia and a huge metropolis, Moscow offers a plethora of different types of accommodations. Many renowned hotel chains are represented in the city, and some of its hotels rank among the world's most luxurious and expensive. Those traveling on a more modest budget can choose among the boutique or Soviet-era hotels. There are also numerous hostels and short-term rental apartments throughout the city. When choosing a place to stay, especially if you're only planning for a short visit, always bear in mind the size of Moscow. Staying too far from the center might mean that the precious time you could spend on sightseeing will be wasted in traffic and transport.
