Voznesenskiy Bridge over the Griboedov Canal

Crossing the Griboedov Canal along the route of Voznesensky Avenue, the Voznesensky Bridge is a simple, single-span steel structure resting on granite-clad packed-rubble abutments. The bridge dates from 1958, replacing a wooden bridge dating back to the 1780s. It was designed to blend with the historic surroundings, using details from older bridges - hence the railings are copied from those on Italiansky Bridge, and the ornate street lamps are copied from old photographs of the original Sadovy Bridge.
