Owner description: Two pairs of mythological cast-iron griffons guard each end of this narrow footbridge, which incorporates some of the best artistic and architectural features of 19th-century bridges.

totally understandable at this location and design. razumovsky palace (the back intrance with a nice gate) is on one side of the bridge. it's nicely lit at night. very romantic.

Very small, but romantic pedestrian bridge, with pair of feathered lions at both ends. Excellent atmosphere, views and photos.

We got lost and accidentally found this bridge not too far from Nevsky. It is a very pretty gem of a bridge in a city with hundreds of bridges. It is surprisingly narrow and the Griffons are very gold and quite impressive.


According to legend it is also a lucky bridge as Griffons are the guardians of treasure.

This is one of my two favourite bridges in St. Petersburg. It has four griffons with large golden wings. Really quirky and intersting, a very good photo spot.
