Rostokinsky aqueduct 2
Rostokinsky aqueduct - hydraulic engineering structure of the abolished Mytishchi water pipeline, the only surviving aqueduct of five built for this system [1]. Passes over the valley of the Yauza River [2], built in 1783-1784 [3]. The Rostokinsky aqueduct is known under the unofficial name "Millionth Bridge" [1]. Although some authors indicate that only 1 million rubles was spent on the construction of the aqueduct [4], in reality a comparable amount from the state budget was allocated for the construction of the whole water pipe [2]. The aqueduct was used for its intended purpose until 1902, after which it served as a support for the water main for 60 years, and from 1962 to 2004 for the heating main. Since 2007, the Rostokinsky aqueduct, converted into a pedestrian bridge, is the main attraction of the capital's recreation park. In 1960, he was ranked among the monuments of architecture of national importance [5].
