Carp Bridge

Gatchina park

The Carp Bridge was constructed over the artificial cascade linking the Carp Pond and the White Lake. The bridge stylistically and quite effectively compliments the austere appearance of the Gatchina Palace. Destroyed during the war, it was reconstructed in the 1980s. Like the Humped Bridge, it connects the two parts of the Long Island and takes it name from the artificial pond, in which silver carps were reared for the royal table. Under the bridge, a lock was constructed that helps to control the level of water in the pond.
