Khrapovitsky Bridge

Khrapovitsky Bridge in St Petersburg, Russia
Khrapovitsky Bridge

Crossing the Moika River between Pisareva Ulitsa and the embankment of the Admiralty Canal, Khrapovitsky Bridge is named after Catherine the Great's personal secretary, Alexander Vasilievich Khrapovitsky, who is best-known to posterity for his popular memoirs of the empress. The current bridge was built in 1965-67 on the site of a wooden bascule bridge that had remained intact for nearly two centuries (1737-1935). A 43-meter, single-span bridge of pre-stressed concrete, the Khrapovitsky Bridge is typical of the 1960s, and utterly unremarkable.
