4 large statues anchor each corner of this bridge over the Neva. To get good pictures try and go early in the day or later in the afternoon but any time would work. The statues of men and their stallions have great detail.

I'm not sure there's anything particularly special about the bridge except for the four horse training statues. The statues have some historical interest but I wouldn't go out of my way to visit. We were in St Petersburg for five days and drove past this...More

We walked over this bridge after boating under it. Don't miss seeing the 4 horse statues at each end of the bridge. See if you can pick out the difference that 2 of the horses have over the other 2. (check out their hooves).

The bridge is good place to have photographs. The statues are intresting and attention grabbing. The water near looks surreal. Its a nice place in all to be.

The sculptures are beautiful as is the whole bridge, but it's not anything heart taking nor "spectacular". Just average, cool sight to see

Visited St Petersburg in February 2018 in negative twenty conditions and the entire canal was frozen over. Was great - if not daring - to venture down and ‘walk on water’ beneath arguably one of the city’s oldest bridges. Found on Nevsky Prospekt it’s one...More

Must be one of the most interesting, and oldest, bridges in St Petersburg. The bridge has four equestrian statues that represent humanity’s struggle and the taming of nature (according to the book). These are great statues to photograph – especially at night – but trying...More
