Youth (Molodiojni) Bridge over the Karpovka River 9.24.2014

Translated from Russian Wikipedia:
The Youth Bridge (МОЛОДЕЖНЫЙ мост, Molodiojni) crosses the Karpovka River in St. Petersburg, connecting Petrograd and Apothecary Island. It is located at the mouth of the Karpovka where it meets the Malaya Nevka along the Admiral Lazarev waterfront promenade.

The bridge was erected in 1975-1976, by project engineer AA Sokolov and architect AV Govorkovskogo. It gets its name from the nearby Palace of Youth, which was built at the same time, when the Sand embankment was extended to Karpovki. The bridge's entrance is decorated with lamps fixtures in the form of octagonal prisms. There is a monumental relief "Youth" by sculptor VG Stamova, on the banks of the Little Neva near the bridge.
