Palace Bridge during the White Nights

Palace Bridge

St Petersburg, Russia

During the White Nights

“Palace Bridge is probably the most famous in St. Petersburg, thanks to its situation between the Winter Palace and the Strelka on Vasilevsky Ostrov. The bridge’s five steel spans weigh 7,770 tons, and are supported by packed-rubble piers with granite facing. Opened in 1916, Palace Bridge was only fully completed in 1939, when the last decorative elements, which include beautiful cast-iron railings and ornate street lamps, were installed. Palace Bridge is most famous for the spectacular views it provides when raised at night during the summer.”

Beautiful!!!
