Bridges in St. Petersburg

more than a year ago
St. Petersburg is possibly one of the only cities in the world that finds itself split in two every night from April until late November. Yes we are talking about those bridges. There are 13 bridges that cross the river Neva and they open for at least four hours to let large ships pass, meaning that for land lovers there’s no way to cross the river. Every night without fail crowds of happy tourists and locals gather on the banks of the river to drink champagne and watch the spectacle, whilst angry drivers and pedestrians shake their fists in frustration as they find themselves trapped on the wrong part of town. Pay attention to our timetable of bridge opening times and ensure that the tired-looking guy staring at an un-crossable river in the middle of the night isn’t you.
