Anichkov Bridge - Review
The Anichkov Bridge is essential viewing for tourists when in St. Petersburg, not just for its excellent vantage point but also for the unique history behind it. The bridge is arched with facades of pink granite and the cast iron railings have fantastical images of mermaids and seahorses. It is the oldest bridge across theriver Fontanka river. Worth noting are the four statues that flank the bridge, especially the statue of Horse tamers that is intricately crafted with great attention to detail.
Legend has it, when the Germans were advancing on the city, the local population decided to bury the four statues in a nearby location. Once the 872 day siege was lifted, the horses were dug up and replaced on their respective plinths. It is interesting stories such as this that make this bridge such a must visit.

Anichkov Bridge, Saint Petersburg Reviews
My favourite bridge. Stunning. I could stare at the statues for hours. When the Fontanka froze I went and walked on the ice and it looks beautiful from the ice. Equally stunning on the pavement or by boat in warm weather. Highly recommend the trip up Nevsky to see it
Beautiful. Panoramic. Helluva crowded)) If you turn to the right side of bridge down the river and walk on the boardwalk there is a lot of impressive architecture.
This bridge is located in the Nevsky Prospect - the main street of Sankt Petersburg is bridging the Fontanka River. The bridge attracts great attention of tourists with four sculptures on its four corners, and it is also known to curious people who observe the sailing of ships below the Fontanka Bridge.
One of many nice bridges is Saint Petersburg, on one of the main streets so your can view it as you walk around.
Memorable moments of my family holiday...live and vibrant specially before dusk
