“First and the most romantic”
Reviewed 28 August 2014 via mobile

When you walk on the Nevsky Prospect please make sure you have a few minutes to stop, enjoy and take pictures! That bridge will take your breath away. Out of 200 bridges in St. Petersburg, the Anichkov Bridge is a first bridge built across the Fontanka river and is considered to be the most romantic place in the city! The Anichkov Bridge is so famous and loved by all for its four beautiful sculptures of men and horses! They are so expressive and dynamic that you would think they are alive! And each of the sculptures are different. You will love it!

“Powerful statues”
Reviewed 23 August 2014 via mobile

When you stroll down Nevskiy Prospect make sure you go far enough to cross this bridge. The statues are powerful.

“Not so impressive as I expected”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

I remember my first impression of this bridge and it was great. But I have seen it again recently. Frankly speaking, the figures are of average size and design. Worth seeing, but not breathtaking.

“Beautiful bridge”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

Landmark sight, make sure you see it. As part of Nevsky Prospekt, the tourist street in St Petersburg, this is a beautiful bridge.

“Beautiful horses and horsemen”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

This bridge is iconic in St Petersburg. It is very busy with traffic as it is on Nevsky Prospect but it spans the Fontanka and makes a pleasant focal point over the river. The river trips with English guides start at the bridge and the Faberge Museum is just a few metres away so this is quite a good way to spend a later afternoon and evening.
