Later, when this territory became Soviet, and later Russian it was renamed White Bridges. This name appeared due to the white stone bridges, which were located near the attractions of the Finnish inhabitants of the region. The amount of water in the waterfall varies depending on the time of year. The most full — flowing periods are autumn and spring.

Some of this marble still adorns the walls of the St. Petersburg metro. Canyons were periodically abandoned, but then resumed production. However, in the early 2000s, they were abandoned completely.

In winter, you can admire the steep marble cliffs, decorated with lights, and go down into the underground galleries.
