Sunset in Moscow

Soaring bridge is a unique viewing platform in the form of the Latin letter "V", located in the park "Zaryadye" in the very center of Moscow.

The bridge it is called only nominally, in fact it is a horseshoe-shaped console flight, making an arc over the Moskvoretskaya embankment and the water of the Moscow River. The total length of the observation platform reaches almost 245 meters, while it rests only on two supports located almost at the base of the bridge, and the length of the outreach of the console part is 70 meters. Towering 15 meters above the level of the Moskva River, the bridge seems to float above it - that's why it was called "Soaring"..A view of the Raushskaya embankment is one of the most important sights of Moscow. Here is the famous 5-star hotel Baltschug. You can also see the first power plant of Moscow MOGES - 1, built in 1896 and still in force. From the remarkable buildings of the embankment you can also note the head office MOSENERGO, the former hotel Khrulevoy, the temple of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker and other buildings from the 18-19th centuries of construction.
