This bridge is different, it has statues of lions that appear to be holding the bridge from their mouths, another fine example.

We stayed at the hotel just next to Lions bridge. Nothing special, they got plenty of statues in this town. But hey, what did you expect?;)

The Lion Bridge is a pretty little pedestrian bridge over the Griboedov Canal. It has two lions either end.

This is one of St Petersburg's smaller bridges, being designed just for pedestrians, but it's still quite attractive and worth a stop as you explore the canals. There's not too much to see and after all it's ultimately just a bridge, so a few minutes...More

We have an apartment 50 meters from this bridge. I love those noble Lions! What dignified expressions. Poor, long-suffering, covered with graffiti, but they maintain their nobility no matter what. I visit this bridge 20-30 times a year minimum.

Also rather far away from Nevski but worth to see it. It's possible to see this bridge from river cruise boats also (recommended by sumnmer time)
