Italian Bridge, St. Petersburg

(3.9/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web)
The Italian Bridge is the bridge across the Griboedov Canal in Saint Petersburg, Russia. It is a single span, steel, pedestrian bridge next to Italian street (hence the name). The bridge's length is 19.66 meters, the width is 3 meters.HistoryThe bridge was built in 1896 in the place of a boat ferry as a single span wooden bridge which connected Big and Little Italian streets. The engineer L.N. Kolpitsin was author of the project. The novelty at the time was use of xilolit plates as a paving material. In 1902 the bridge was rebuilt for the first time, and around 1911-1912 it was rebuilt again. After quarter of century, in 1937 the bridge went through the capital reconstruction, in order to fit two termal pipes into it. In 1955 during the renovation of Griboedov Canal embankments the bridge was completely rebuilt again. Since then it has its modern look.

  • Crowded from morning till night day taking photos of many people and tourists alike. Church of the Savior on blood in view was wonderful from here.

  • It is a good location for taking pictures at the Church on the spilled blood, step you take advantage of visiting one of the many bridges in the city.

  • A metal pedestrian bridge is green with some ornaments in Rails, at each end has two lanterns. The interesting aspect is that found in the canal parallel to the Church of the Savior on the spilled blood, otherwise would pass unnoticed. Petersburgo enjoy an Imperial City... a beautiful city. LIFE...! It IS a trip!
