Kharlamov Bridge across the Griboyedov Canal 9.21.2014
One of the Griboedov Canal's newest bridges, Kharlamov Bridge (Харламов мост), carries Romskogo-Korsakogo Ulitsa across the canal. It is a single-span reinforced concrete bridge with granite facing. It was built to replace a wooden bridge, which had stood on the site since 1753. The bridge's name honors a State Councilor who lived nearby in the 18th century. In comparison to the Griboedov Canal's other bridges, Kharlamov Bridge is woefully lacking in ornament, and even its railings are strictly functional.
