Red Army (Krasnoarmeysky) Bridge across the Fontanka River 9.21.2014
Pedestrian Krasnoarmeiskiy Bridge
Krasnoarmeysky - "Red Army" - Bridge (Красноармейский мост) crosses the Fontanka River next to the mouth of the Kryukov Canal. The three-arch metal pedestrian bridge was completed in 1956, and was designed to carry heating pipes across the Fontanka. The bridge's abutments and piers are faced in granite, and the span of the bridge is sparsely decorated with simple cast-iron railings and slender cast-iron lampposts supporting pairs of glass orbs. The bridge's position affords fine views down the Kryukov Canal, and onto the domes of the Trinity Cathedral opposite.
