Hermitage Bridge

Hermitage Bridge in Saint-Petersburg, Russia seen from theNeva River

This stone bridge across the tiny Winter Channel, which flows into the Neva River right next to the Winter Palace, was built along with the Neva's granite embankments in 1763-66, making it the oldest stone bridge in the city. Originally, the bridge was constructed from brick and limestone resting on rubble abutments with granite facing. The structure of the bridge was replaced with reinforced concrete in 1934, but the bridge's granite exterior was preserved, and further restored in 1950.
