19 Kudos
The Anichkov Most bridge in St Petersburgh, Russia crosses over the Fontanka River. This bridge featuring rearing horses and horse handlers are positioned at all four corners of the bridge setting it apart from the other nearby ordinary bridges and is the oldest and most famous bridge across the Fontanka River. The rearing horses with their handlers symbolize humanity’s struggle with and taming of nature. The bridge is named after the engineer that created it between 1841 and 1842, Mikhail Anichkov. The four statues at each corner were designed by Russian sculpture Baron Peter Klodt von Jurgrnsburg and are among the city’s most recognizable landmarks.
