Belinskogo Bridge carries cars, trams and pedestrians across the Fontanka River between the Circus and the Church of Ss. Simon and Anna, thus offering superb views in all directions from its humped back. The Belinskogo Bridge was erected in 1785, during the construction of the Fontanka's granite embankments, and was originally a bascule bridge with a raising wooden span and domed towers containing the lifting mechanism. These were removed in 1859, and in 1890 the bridge's beautiful wrought iron handrail was added.
