Nizhny Lebyazhy Most (Lower Swan Bridge) is a bridge over Lebyazhiya kanavka (Swan groove) close to its confluence with Moyka.
In 1720-1733 a wooden drawbridge, established by engineer Harmen van Bol'es was located on this place. It was named Pervy Tsaritsynsky Most (1st Tsarina’s bridge), as it was situated close to Tsaritsynsky Lug (Tsarina’s Meadow, or the Field of Mars). By 1760 the bridge had been turned into a joist passage. In 1835 – 1837, when territory next to Mikhailovsky Castle was beingreplanned, engineers P.-D. Bazaine, A.D.Gottman and A.I. Remezov built a new bridge at the place of crossing. A stone arched single-span bridge was named Nizhny Lebyazhy Most (Lower Swan Bridge). Its fronts and pillars are faced with granite. In 1849 a sunken arch was repaired. In 1925 – 1926 engineers B.D. Vasiliev and A.L. Salarev reconstructed the bridge. A brick span construction was demolished and on its place a solid reinforced concrete arch faced with granite was built.
