Silin Bridge is a bridge across river Karpovka in Saint Petersburg. It connects Petrogradsky and Aptekarsky islands.



Pontoon bridge was built here in the 1760s instead of the ferrying. In 1776 a permanent three-span wooden bridge was built and in 1864 and 1878 it was rebuilt and reconstructed.

A modern single-span reinforced concrete bridge was built in 1936. The bridge is decorated with cast-iron handrails with bronze bas-reliefs and was constructed by L.Dietrich. The stone foundations are on the pile basement with a concrete pad. Supports and spans are cladded in granite. The bridge got its name after the land and pub owner.

In 1936, when the wooden bridge was being replaced for the reinforced concrete one, the bridge got the name "Pionersky" and had been bearing it till 1991, when it was given back the original title.
