Neighborhood: Central

This is a one-section arched bridge 17.7 meters long and 72 meters wide crossing the river Moika in front of the Glinka State Kapella building. In 1834 a wooden bridge was erected on this site to allow troops to pass in the opening ceremony of the Alexander Column on Palace Square. Montferrand the architect was behind the project and had the bridge painted yellow, hence the nickname. Between 1839 and 1849, it was replaced with a cast-iron structure. Its main attraction is the cast-iron lattice railings.
