Crimean Bridge

Set in a prime location in the heart of the city, this magnificent suspension bridge lights up the Moscow night sky after dark.

The Crimean Bridge, or Krymsky Most, is Moscow’s first suspension bridge and one of the biggest chain bridges in Europe. Admire its unique architecture from afar and then take a walk across it for some of the finest views in the city.

Note that the current bridge is the fourth built on this site. It was erected in 1938, crossing the wide Moskva River. Its name comes from the military exploits of the Tatars of Crimea, who crossed the river near here as they approached Moscow.

Today the bridge serves both vehicles and people crossing on foot. The crossing is particularly busy because it is part of the Garden Ring, a major road in the Russian capital. Walk along the bridge to get views up and down the Moskva River. Pause at the midway point and try to spot the most recognizable city landmarks. Look for the golden domes of the Church of Christ the Savior and the distinctive spires of the main Kremlin building. Take photographs of your visit to this iconic spot.

Board a boat to cruise along the river for a different perspective on the bridge and to see Moscow’s other riverside sites. As you pass underneath, check out its massive suspension cables, which help support the road deck below. Return to the bridge at night to see it lit up and to admire the golden lights reflecting beautifully on the Moskva River below.

The Crimean Bridge is also a pleasant route to reach other nearby Moscow attractions. Heading to its north end, you’ll find the Gorky Central Park of Culture and Leisure amusement park and the Fallen Monument Park, home to the Tetryakov Gallery, which specializes in 20th-century art. Access the bridge from the Park Kultury metro station to the south or the Oktyabrskaya station on the north side of the river.
