"In 1807 Voronikhin built the Visconti Bridge in the Slavianka valley. One of the finest in the park, it is called after [David] Visconti, the Italian master mason who constructed it. This bridge bounds the view of a broad expanse of river, and it was this that determined its design. Its outline, with the smooth curve of the span and the decorative stone vases on the abutments, as well as the facing of yellowish grey tufa limestone, gave the bridge great beauty and made it the key feature in a vast scene" - wrote Anatoli Michailovich Kuchumov in his book Pavlovsk Palace and Park.
