Alexander Nevsky bridge is the final point of main city's line - Nevsky Prospect
It may be said that it is the end of an old Petersburg.
On the other shore of Neva there are located Stalin era districts, and after them there are residential districts of the city. If you are going right ahead, you'll eventually reach Vsevolojsk.
Until 2004, when the Big Obukhovsky Bridge was built, the Alexander Nevsky bridge was the longest bridge across the Neva River in Saint Petersburg. Its length is 905.7 meters, and it is 35 meters wide. The bridge was built from 1960 to 1965. Designed by the group of architects - A. Zhuk, S. Mayofis and Y. Sinitsa - the bridge has complemented the look of adjacent buildings in surrounding area. The project was led by a team of engineers of the "Lengiprotransmost" institute. Proof-testing was done by means of a column of army tanks. On November 5, 1965 the bridge was open for traffic.
The new image of the bridge was formed after installing the system of illumination in 2003. Today the Alexander Nevsky bridge creates one of the most beautiful night views of St – Petersburg.
