This bridge over the Fontanka river is the most famous thanks to its statues: 4 beautiful horsebreakers. Few people know that these statues are actually copies. The original were donated by the Tsar to the King of Prussia and to the King of Naples.

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).
