Named to commemorate the liberation from Nazi forces of Kantemirovka Station near Voronezh in 1942, Kantemirovsky Bridge crosses the Malaya Nevka River between Aptekarsky Island and the Vyborg Side right next to St. Petersburg's television tower. The bridge was built between 1979 and 1982, and measures 316 meters across the river, but almost twice that length including approaches. The bridge is constructed from steel and reinforced concrete, and has a central opening span that revolves on a fixed axis.
