Palace Bridge, Russia

From series “Unbelievable and Magnificent Bridges and Viaducts”
Year: 1916. Lenght: 260 meters. Width: 27 meters.

The St Petersburg Bridge is the popular historical site. This legendary bridge was laid over the Neva River as late as 1916. The aim of the bridge construction was quite simple - to connect two banks of the river, on which were the houses of the tsarist family and the most distinguished magnates. That is why the bridge was considered to be the main bridge at the time of opening. The bridge was named in honor of the Winter Palace, which is located in the immediate vicinity of it.

Palace Bridge, Russia The length of the drawbridge forms 260 meters, and the width - 27 meters. The observation of the drawbridge is one of the oldest and best 'rituals' for the inhabitants of Saint Petersburg and the city guests. In the evening, the bridge is decorated with the magnificent illumination. 2012 began the great reconstruction of the bridge, which lasted nearly a year. Now the castle bridge is completely safe again, which one could not say before.

The hundred-year movement drive of the Schlossbrücke is still unique. The weight of the arches, which it lifts upwards, forms about 700 tons. The design of the motor drive is relatively simple and consists of a system of counterweights and large gears, as well as the powerful motors. The last reconstruction was started because of the frequent breaks in the movement drive. A pretty big break happened in 2009. After the reconstruction, the castle bridge will be safe and charm the guests of the capital of the Russian capital. Next - Brooklyn Bridge
