Trinity Bridge

Russia, St. Petersburg

Among all the city bridges - stone, cast iron, and modern reinforced concrete bridges -Trinity Bridge is one of the most beautiful. The coincidence of anniversary dates of the bridge and the city (however, with a difference of 200 years) is remarkable. For the anniversary of the city the authorities announces an open competition for the best project. One of the projects proposed within the competition was that of Gustav Eiffel's firm, but the final choice was made in favor of another French project. The bridge was officially opened in May 1903. The draw of the bridge before the reconstruction was not lifting, but turning: the span revolved on its axis horizontally forming two navigable ways about 23 meters wide. The present bridge is equipped with a vertically lifting span about 100 meters long. The length of the bridge is 582 meters; it is faced with granite slabs, fenced in elegant grilles and decorated with fine lanterns.
