Crossing the mouth of the Malaya Neva River between Vasilevsky Island and Mytninskaya Embankment on the Petrograd Side, the Exchange Bridge, which takes its name from the nearby Stock Exchange Building - "birzha" in Russian - was built between 1957 and 1960, but designed to match the much older Palace Bridge on the other side of the Vasilevsky Island Spit. The five-span steel bridge rests on granite-faced piers of reinforced concrete, and the bridges simple but elegant decorations include cast iron railings featuring nautical decorations.
