Translated from Russian Wikipedia:
Four Lions Bridge (Львиный_мост) is a pedestrian bridge over the Griboyedov Canal in the Admiralty district of Saint Petersburg, connecting Kazan and Spassky Islands. It was built between 1825-1826 under the project of W. von Tretter and VA Christianovich.
Upstream from the Four Lions Bridge is the Kokushkin bridge. Below stream is the Kharlamov bridge. Four Lions Bridge connects Lion Lane and Little Podyacheskuyu street. The name Lions Bridge comes from the four cast-iron sculptures of lions by sculptor P. Sokolov, located at the corners of the bridge.
