Let’s continue our journey by passaging under one of the most beautiful bridges in St. Petersburg. The bridge has a rich decor: lion masks, the heads of Medusa Gorgon, images of the peak, shields, swords, covered with pure gold. The bridge is framed by traditionally styled lanterns. The key dominant of this location is the terracotta-coloured Mikhailovsky castle-fortress, reminiscent of a Renaissance palazzo.
There is a monument for Chyzik-Pyzhik at the junction of Panteleimonovsky and the First Engineer Bridges. The author of the monument is Rezo Gabriadze. This figurine is one of the smallest monuments in St. Petersburg. Its height is only 11 cm and its weight is about 5 kg. During the existence of the monument, it was stolen several times, but each time the sculpture returned to its place.
According to the belief, if you make a wish and hit with a coin on Chizhik-Pyzhik, then your desire will definitely come true.
Do not forget to try your luck and make a miniature monument from the historical centre of the city a guarantee for a long and happy family life.
