The Palace Bridge-Russia

Palace Bridge is probably the most famous in St. Petersburg, thanks to its situation between the Winter Palace and the Strelka on Vasilevsky Ostrov. The bridge's five steel spans weigh 7,770 tons, and are supported by packed-rubble piers with granite facing. Opened in 1916, Palace Bridge was only fully completed in 1939, when the last decorative elements, which include beautiful cast-iron railings and ornate street lamps, were installed. Palace Bridge is most famous for the spectacular views it provides when raised at night during the summer.

The Xueshan, Yushan, Nanhuda Mountain, Xiuguluan Mountain and Beidawu Mountain are the five highest mountains in Taiwan. Dabajian Mountain is 3,492 meters in height. Dabajian Mountain, Zhongyangjian Mountain and Dafenjian Mountain are called the three Peak Mountains in Taiwan.
Shei-Pa National Park is noted for its rough geography and natural scenery. Mountains in the park are origins of major rivers in northern and central Taiwan. Erosion by the rivers has formed special scenes in the park. As for climate, the park has both sub-frigid and temperate climates and thus breeds various plants and animals. Wildlife here includes salmon, black bears, etc.
