Photographer's Note

Drawing of the bridges on Neva River are kind of the brand of St-Petersburg - no other city in the world have this amount of draw-bridges in the very heart of the city, with such a scenic event of theirr drawing to let a cargo ships went through in the middle of the night.
This exact draw bridge are Palace Bridge, right near The Hermitage. Time of the photo are 1:20 - usual time of the drawing of this bridge.
All 6 big bridges on Neva are drawing one after another, and if you don't have a car with you to travel to suburb's located new not-drawing bridge, and don't fancy staying on some island for at least 4:30 in the night, when visiting St-Petersburg you have to check the schedule of the drawing of the bridges.
