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.

While strolling the streets and canals of this lovely city I came upon this very artistic bridge. Very nice site with the cathedral in the background. I was fortunate to find a student artist painting the scene. I was able to buy one of his paintings for just a few rubles. It now sits above my dining table and fondly reminds me of my trip.

Just a couple blocks south of Nevsky Prospekt is the Bank Bridge with beautiful griffins. It's one of many bridges that offer beautiful views of the canals. There also are cafes and coffee shops nearby.

Rather far away from nevski. But apparently must see in St-Pete. Some historical buildings are around this bridge
