Kokushkin Bridge over the Griboedov Canal

Linking Kokushkin Pereulok with Stoliarny Pereulok on one of the quietest and most picturesque stretches of the Griboedov Canal, Kokushkin Bridge is a simple, metal, single-span bridge that dates from 1948. The present bridge replaced a wooden bridge that had stood almost unchanged from 1790. Kokushkin Bridge, while far from being the most impressive on the Griboedov Canal, is notable for its fine cast iron decorations, both on the railings and on the body of the bridge.
