This is Alexsandra Nevskogo Bridge in St. Petersburg. This bridge is 905.7 meters long and 35 meters wide and connects Ploshchad' Aleksandra Nevskogo with Zanevskii Prospekt. It was built between 1960 and 1965 to answer a need for high-speed links between new developments on the right bank of the river Neva and the city center. The city's longest bridge was opened amid pomp and circumstance in late 1965. It is not really much of a beauty but is remarkable, at least for its impressive dimensions.
