Dear friends and guests of St.-Petersburg!
It’s my pleasure to greet you on the pages of our web-site devoted to all the bridges
of the Northern Capital.
Bridges are a special pride of Saint-Petersburg; they represent the gallery of engineering achievements and monumental art that became characteristic feature
of St.-Petersburg architectural landscape.
Here we have gathered all historical data about the bridges of the city, modern pictures
and unique information which, I hope, will be useful and interesting for our guests.
The bridge is a symbol linking times and generations, nations and countries.
I believe that Saint-Petersburg bridges are also “the bridges of friendship” between the guests
and our citizens, and each SP SBI Mostotrest employee daily works to make our
“bridges of friendship” stronger.
Welcome and have a nice tour!
Alexandr Burnosov, Director of SP SBI Mostotrest.
