“The Opening Bridge.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2014

I am not so sure about this Bridge, but the is a Bridge which opens up on either side, like the Bridge in London, to let the Sea traffic pass by. If this is the one, it opens past midnight. In June, it is a sight, because you still have daylight till 01.00 hrs. The bridge opens up slowly & with absolute precision. Hope it is the same Bridge I am talking about.

“On Nevsky Prospekt, can't be missed!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2014

The bridge is situated at a beautiful part of the river, and each corner depicts a man with his horse, which is steadily rearing out of his control. Interesting to see, highly recommended

“Not as spectacular as advertised”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014

We strolled along Nevsky Prospekt, and as we enjoyed the four sculptures, we didn't think they are as spectacular as to deserve to be the 10# ranked attraction in the whole of Petersburg. So I would not recommend to go here if it takes quite a detour for you, but if you happen to be around, it is quite nice.

“a thing of beauty is a joy for ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

All four sculptures are very impressive, but especially the sculpture on the North West corner is an absolute master peace and a joy to look at.
