It is not so easy to find these masks

Looking for them near the Rostral Columns or Birzhevaya Ploshchad (Exchange Square) is waste of time. You need to go down directly to the Neva River. Then you finally would be able to see a wall of the embankment, which is decorated with masks of lions with berthing rings in teeth. There is a belief that if the newlyweds will hold for the ring  together, their marriage will be strong and long, as the lion symbolizes force and the ring means eternity.
