Photographer's Note

This is the top part of a gate leading to Yekaterininskiy Palace (named after Catherine the Great) in the town of Pushkin in the vicinity of St. Petersburg in Russia.

The two-headed eagle is the symbol of Tzarist power.

The artwork is exceptional in Russian Tzarist palaces.
There are many examples of metal artwork on bridges over rivers and gates (like this one).
It is worth visiting!

P.S. I saw a very similar picture on a Travel Agency calendar!
