    Tuchkov Bridge over the Malaya Neva

Tuchkov Bridge crosses the Malaya Neva River from the Petrograd Side, between the Yubileiniy Palace of Sport and the Petrovskiy Stadium, to the First Line of Vasilevskiy Ostrov. A modern, three-span steel bridge on granite-clad, reinforced-concrete piers, Tuchkov Bridge mimics Palace Bridge in design, with its symmetrical opening central span and lack of obvious ornament. In fact, despite its central location, Tuchkov Bridge is one of the least decorative in the city. It was built in 1962-65, to replace a 20-span wooden trestle bridge, which had stood since 1835.
