Mogilevsky Bridge Bridge across the Griboyedov Canal (with Church of St. Isidor in the background) 9.21.2014

From Saint-Petersburg.com:
Carrying Lermontovskiy Prospekt across the Griboedov Canal next to the charming Church of St. Isidor, the Mogilevsky Bridge (Могилёвский мост) is an elegant single-span construction that dates from only 1953, but was designed in the Russian Empire style to blend with its surroundings. The first wooden bridge was built here in 1911, and the current bridge is a reinforced concrete structure, with its abutments and arch faced in traditional pink granite. The bridge's cast-iron railings are copied from those on the Moika River embankments, and it also has elegant street lamps.
