Italian Bridge, St. Petersburg

3.7
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.

  • The small Italian bridge is nothing fancy, but it's a great location, without the fuss of a wall of tourists at one meter away, to take souvenir photo from the Centre of Griboedov's Canal of Church of the Savior on spilled blood on one side and on the other of Nevsky Avenue with the glimpse of the palazzo della Zinger Company House.

  • Originally built in 1896, the Italian bridge, rebuilt in 1955 which operation to now. Italian bridge itself is small, only three meters 19 meters long and 闊. Bridge itself no great features, but on the bridge is 攝 Christ blood Cathedral and Kazan, the view point of the Church is not wrong.

  • One of the many bridges that characterize St. Petersburg city water; photographs must be able to tell that "we were on the Bridge of the Italians", but then it all ends here; There's a big difference compared to the bridges of Venice.
