The bridge is an absolutely must see when in St. Petersburg ! It is told the griffins when touched make your wishes come true and you will have a lot of luck in life !

Just a couple blocks south of Nevsky Prospekt is the Bank Bridge with beautiful griffins. It's one of many bridges that offer beautiful views of the canals. There also are cafes and coffee shops nearby.
