Zhivopisny Bridge (Picturesque bridge) is a cable-stayed bridge that spans the Moskva River in north-western Moscow. It is the first cable-stayed bridge in Moscow. Opened on 27 December 2007 as a part of Krasnoprenensky avenue. It is also the highest cable-stayed bridge in Europe. The bridge is unique in that most of its length runs along the river, not across it. Total length of an S-shaped deck exceeds 1.5 kilometers, including a 420-meter long, 47-meter wide main section running 30 meters above and along the centerline of the Moskva River. The main pylon is a 105-meter high arch across the river, carrying the weight of deck through 78 cables
