One of the most surprising misunderstandings in my life was when guests from another city were sure that our bridges lift in winter, too.

See, they thought it was just a touristy attraction.

... I personally find ships going through the river much more of a fascinating sight than just bridges lifting. The bridges do not all lift in the same way, and the river has a bit of a turn within the city, so at one point the ships cross the river at almost a diagonal so as to be able to pass through the next bridge.

(I still regret a bit about not being able to see the Aurora go back to her place. It was night, and it was cold, and they weren't sure till the last moment that there would be enough water for a cruiser to go up, but still.)
