L'vinyi Most (Lion Bridge) is a pedestrian suspension bridge 22.4 meters long and 2.2 meters wide crossing the Canal Griboedova near Teatral'naia Ploshchad'. It was built in 1826 by engineers G.M. Tretter and V.A. Khristianovich. Four proud cast-iron lions based on the models of sculptor Petr Pavlovich Sokolov reign are on the bridge's piers. Hidden inside the sculptures are chains vital to the bridge's suspension. The bridge's railings are of noteworthy design - a string of diamond shapes with rosettes joining them together.
