The Kissing Bridge - Potseluev Most
« on: December 17, 2010, 12:33:50 AM »
The Kissing Bridge -  Potseluev Most

The Kissing Bridge crosses the  Moika River at Glinki Street near the New Holland.

This bridge is popular with sweethearts.  A kiss on the Kissing Bridge is definitely good luck.
However,  kissing on one of the many  drawbridges in the city is a bad sign  since two parts of these bridges part with each other.

The first bridge was built in 1738 as a wooden pedestrian bridge.
In 1808 a cast-iron bridge was built to replace the aging wooden one.
Ends of the bridge are decorated with stone obelisks with lamps.
 Spheres on top of the obelisks were gilded in 1969.

The Potseluev (kiss) Bridge  was named after Merchant Potseluyev,  the owner of the public house “Potselui” (kiss)  nearby.

People in St. Petersburg today carry on the legends of the Potseluev Bridge.
A young couple kissing on the Potseluyev Bridge will be always happy together.
Newly weds often come to the bridge to kiss and take pictures.
