Mogilevsky bridge connects Kolomensky and Pokrovsky islands over Griboedova Canal in the Admiralteysky district of St. Petersburg.

The bridge got its name from Mogilevskaya Street, the former name of the part of Lermontovsky Prospekt between Griboedova Canal and Fontanka river.  The street itself was named after the Belarusian city of Mogilev.

The modern single-span reinforced concrete arch bridge was built in 1951-1953 according to the project of engineer V.V. Blazhevich and architect S.G. Krasikov.  The bridge is 28.3 m long and 23.5 m wide.

The Mogilev bridge is a part of a unique panorama called «Semimostie» (which is translated from Russian as «Place of seven bridges»).  The view of  «Semimostie» is opened from the Pikalov bridge over Griboedova Canal, from where you can see six more bridges: Krasnogvardeisky, Novo-Nikolsky and Mogilevsky over Griboedova Canal and Staro-Nikolsky, Smezhny and Kashin - over Kryukov Canal.
