Would you like to see the opening of the Palace bridge over the Neva River? The two gigantic wings of this most popular bridge in Saint Petersburg located next to the fabulous Winter Palace open up at night. That’s a breathtaking view, especially during the White Nights period. Let’s walk along the Palace Embankment to see the buildings of the Hermitage museum complex and some other palaces that used to belong to the Royal family. The Trinity Bridge is the longest historic bridge in Saint Petersburg - it’s more than 500 meters (1600 ft) long! Unlike the Palace Bridge, this one has only one wing to open. The history of this bridge is closely connected with the family of the last Russian emperor Nicholas II and, also, France. Join my virtual trip to hear the stories and see all these beauties for yourself.

Interesting to see the bridges ‘open’, but it seemed quite frantic at times. The walk back from the Trinity Bridge was much calmer and we had good views. Anna always appears very organised, maybe there were too many people about; however the bridges were staying open for quite a long time, so what was the rush.

Anna is just so so good. She makes me laugh. It was a hard night for her with all the crowds trying to get from one bridge to the other but she was brilliant
