Krasnyi Most or Red Bridge is a one-bay arched bridge 22 meters long and 16 meters wide crossing the river Moika at Gorokhovaia Ulitsa. It started out life as a wooden bridge in 1717. Between 1808 and 1814, a cast-iron bridge was built to replace its wooden counterpart. This project was led by V.I. Geste. In 1953, reconstruction work replaced the cast-iron structure with a steel one, but the bridge's outer appearance remained unchanged. Granite obelisks and streetlamps have been put in place, the surfaces of which are painted red.
