Semyonovsky Bridge or Semenovsky Bridge (Russian: Семёновский Мост) is a bridge across the Fontanka River in Saint Petersburg, Russia. It carries the Gorokhovaya Street. It was opened in 1733 as a wooden bridge, then rebuilt in stone in 1788, and subsequently modified in 1857 and 1949. The bridge took its name from the Semenovsky Imperial Guard regiment barracks located nearby.[1]

The area is home to many sightseeing boats going to the Winter Palace, Peter and Paul Fortress, Summer Garden, and the Church of the Savior on Blood.
