Krasnogvardeysky most (Krasnogvardeysky bridge) connects Kazansky and Spassky islands, divided by kanal Griboyedova (Griboedov canal).
The bridge where Pierre comes to a decision to head to Anatole Kuragin's is one of the «7 bridges» («semimostye») which is a place where one may observe 7 bridges at the same time. This is a very place to make a wish.
The domes of Nikolsky sobor (Nikolsky Naval cathedral) may be seen over the roofs of the houses. The cathedral is considered one of the most beautiful in St. Petersburg.
