This card sent to me by Elena shows a View of Kama river and bridge in Perm, Russia. Perm is a city and the administrative centre of Perm Krai, Russia, located on the banks of the Kama River in the European part of Russia near the Ural Mountains. From 1940 to 1957 it was named Molotov.
The Kama Bridge, is a bridge on the highway R239 near Soroch'i Gory settlement in Tatarstan, Russia. It is a part of the longest bridge structure in Russia if measured by the total length of elevated roadway. The structure with a total length of 13,967 m incorporates three bridges: over the Kama River(1,608 m), over the Arkharovka River (549.9 m) and over the Kurlyanka River (69.8 m).
The construction of the bridge structure began in 1992 and was completed on 18 October 2002, when it was officially opened by the President of Tatarstan. The bridge is a very important one, since it is a part of a major Kazan - Chistopol -
Bugulma - Orenburg highway. The second stage of the structure is planned to be built at a later date.
