I walked around the bridge taking some photos and also over it, taking some more. Walking over is not nice - the traffic was quite intense during the day, with noise and dust. I liked much better the views of Volga including the bridge and the church, from the bank opposite to the church.

Old bridge

When this bridge first existed, it was a pontoon bridge, connecting the two sides of the city over the river. It's now a modern bridge, the history is given by a sign at one end of the bridge.

Old Bridge over Volga
May 2017
This bridge is very beautiful as of pending in the air. It is very similar to Krymsky bridge in Moscow over the Moskva river.

Looks great, especially at night. The nice view of the city opens around too. You can see Volga, Travelling Palace of Catherine the Great and many other beautiful places.

Bridge over untroubled water
Sep 2014 • Couples
Old though it be, this construction does a good job of getting travelers from one bank of the great Volga River to the other. It consists of a base composed of cement or stone pillars driven into the bed of the river, upon which is placed a continuous span of interlaced metal rising to two peaks. I don’t recall having seen a similar bridge in the past. Our guide could not explain how it was put together, and it could be a fascinating conundrum for someone with an Engineering background, as it does not conform to any of the 20 or so different types set out in Wikipedia. It is treated with disdain by Alexander Pushkin, whose nearby statue has his back to it, and prefers to look out over the dreary fields through which the river flows. The journey across does not offer very much except the flat landscape and the right to claim “I crossed the Volga without help from the singing Boatman"

Definitely the landmark #1

This bridge is definitely the best place to visit in my home city.

Recommended route: Starting at Zvezda cinema => Walking up the river through the City Park (800m) => Crossing the Old Bridge => following 1.2 km embankment down the river to the riverside station => returning up to the New Bridge => crossing the New Bridge to finish at Zvezda again. This will take slightly more than an hour.
